At 10:00 am on Tuesday morning at Riverside City Hall, political hopefuls gathered for the official “ballot draw” to determine each candidate’s placement on the ballot for the upcoming November election.
In what is believed to be the first contested Riverside City Council election in many years, four candidates are vying for three seats. Riverside’s city council is elected entirely on an at-large basis, meaning that the three candidates with the most votes will win those seats.
The candidates, in ballot order, are:
- Billy Philio
- Jimmy Brummett
- Bill Tutor
- Grace Laird
Philio, Brummett, and Tutor are all incumbents seeking re-election.
The general election will be held on Tuesday, November 6th with early voting taking place October 22 – November 2.
Riverside City Council meets on the first Tuesday of each month at Riverside City Hall; the meetings are open to the public. The city can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
