Three more candidates have pulled nomination papers from the city clerk’s office, signaling their intent to run for office in the upcoming fall elections.

District 3 City Councilor Donna McClure has taken out nomination papers, although according to City Clerk Bonnijo Kitchin, she is unsure of whether she will seek re-election in District 3 or try to run as a candidate for councilor at-large.

Kitchin also said District 5 Councilor Joseph McMilleon came in to pull papers, indicating he will seek re-election in the fall elections as well.

Rounding off the new entrants was Eric Bezanson of 115 Whitehall Road, who pulled his nomination papers after initially trying to take them out way back in January, months before they were available. Bezanson will be running for councilor at-large.


The city will be holding a hazardous waste collection day early next month when residents can dispose of items that are normally not accepted during trash pickup.

Some of the items that are normally considered hazardous include light bulbs, car fluids like gasoline and oil, aerosol cans, metal cleaners, roofing tar, hazardous chemicals like those used in photo developing, floor polishes, oven cleaners, rug and upholstery cleaners and paint strippers and thinners.

The waste will be collected on Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Water Street Parking Garage, and the event is open to all.

The cost to dispose of hazardous household waste will be $24 per 10 gallons or pounds of waste, which is approximately half a car load, and $44 per 25 gallons or pounds of waste, which is about a full car load.
