Four seats on the Escalon City Council will be up for election in November; three full four-year terms are available, along with a two-year term, remaining on a vacated four-year term.
The terms of Mayor Ed Alves, Mayor Pro Tem Robert Swift, councilman Peter Krumeich and councilman Andy Hagan – who was appointed to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Laugero when he ran for the post of Stanislaus County District Attorney in the June primary election – will be on the ballot on Nov. 8, 2022.
The nomination period runs through Friday, Aug. 12 and those looking to join the race are asked to contact City Manager Dominique Romo at City Hall, 209-691-7450, to schedule an appointment to pick up the nomination paperwork and learn about the requirements.
Councilman David Bellinger holds the only seat on the dais that will not be up for election in November.
The last day to return documents to the City Clerk to be on the ballot is Friday, Aug. 12 by 5 p.m.
It would be extended until 5 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 17 if no incumbent files by the Aug. 12 date; that extension would be for non-incumbent candidates only to file.
Paperwork provided to potential candidates covers everything from the requirements for running for office to providing a candidate statement, campaign disclosure forms and city ordinances covering political signs and advertisements.
Regular hours at City Hall, 2060 McHenry Ave., are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, closed Fridays.
