TALLMADGE — When voters go to the polls on Tuesday, they will be deciding who will occupy the three at-large City Council seats for the next four years.
However, the three seats on the Tallmadge Board of Education have already been decided, with the three incumbents the only candidates seeking those positions.
Seeking re-election to their Council posts are incumbents James Donovan, a Democratm and John Rensel, Republican.
They are being challenged by Democrats Michael Carano and Chuck Victor; Republican Bill Laymon; and Dennis Loughry, an Independent.
At-large Councilmember Kimberly Ray did not file for re-election. Carol Kilway, who is the Ward 4 representative, had filed to run for an at-large seat but her petitions were ruled short of the necessary signatures by the Summit County Board of Elections earlier this year.
The three at-large winners will take office Jan. 1, 2018.
Continuing their service on the Board of Education will be Mark Fairhurst, Rick Kellar and Chris Tywon. Their four-year terms will commence Jan. 1, 2018.
Summit County voters will also be asked to decide Issue 3, a 4.5-mill, six-year renewal levy request for the Summit County Developmental Disabilities Board.
The polls will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. For information and polling locations, contact the Summit County Board of Elections at 330-643-5200 or visit the website at www.summitcountyboe.com.
