Three seats are available for the Ripon City Council race on the November ballot.
Up for grabs are the posts currently occupied by Mayor Elden ‘Red’ Nutt, Vice Mayor Garry Krebbs and Charlie Gay.
Nutt and Gay recently filed, according to the San Joaquin County Registrar of Voters office in Stockton as of Wednesday.
Three challengers also emerged. Included are retired longtime Ripon Unified superintendent Leo Zuber, recently retired police officer Scott Lindsay, and youth coordinator / businessman Robbie Orlando.
Nutt is a retired police chief while Gay is an independent businessman.
Meanwhile, no listing was available for the Ripon Unified school board race.
The seats currently occupied by board President Mike Fisher and Jack DeLiddo will soon expire.
If both opt for re-election, they’ll do so testing the newly redistricted trustee representation areas.
These approved boundaries are made up of equally divided regions, averaging 3,472 residents based on the 2010 U.S. Census in compliance with the “one person, one vote” principle.
Filing for both the school board and city council close Friday.
