Galion Council election field set

With all positions up for re-election, the field for Galion City Council’s November election has been set.

Carl Watt is running unopposed for Galion City Council President.

Councilmembers Sarah Capretta, Mark Triplett and Susan Bean are also running unopposed in Wards One, Two and Four respectively.

In Ward Three, businessman Jim Hedges will challenge incumbant Michael Richart.

Five people are running for three At-Large Council spots. Incumbants Shirley Clark and Dr. Thomas Fellner will be challenged by Judy Gibson, Gail Baldinger and current Galion Treasurer Paula Durbin.

Councilman Jon Kleinknecht did not turn in a petition seeking re-election.

There will be a new treasurer next year in Galion as Bill Comerford will face off against Rod Sparks.
