It’ll be a crowed field of candidates this fall hoping to get a spot at the dais at the Port Huron Municipal Office Center. Four mayoral and seven council candidates will appear on the ballot, according to City Clerk Cyndee Jonseck. The deadline to return petitions to the city was this week. Those returning petitions for Mayor include newcomers Daniel Palm, Nicholas LaBonte, and Kevin Lindke. They hope to replace incumbent Mayor Pauline Repp who is running for re-election. Mayor’s elections occur every two years in Port Huron, and is voted on separately from the rest of council.
Seven candidates including challengers Robert Mosurak, Teri Lamb, Chris Troy, Anthony Lindsay, and Tyler Moldouan are vying for three council seats up for grabs. Those seats are currently held by incumbents Ken Harris , Scott Worden, and Sherri Archibald. Harris is not seeking re-election, while Worden and Archibald are. Councilwoman Lisa Beedon is running for a spot on the St. Clair County Board of Commissioners this fall, if she wins in her bid for the retiring Howard Heideman’s seat, her place on council could be filled by the next highest vote-getter. Council candidates are up for election in staggered terms of four years and are elected at-large by voters. Port Huron’s municipal elections will coincide with the November 3rd general election.
