Seven now in council race

Michael Schneider

The flood gates have opened.

Four more candidates have filed papers with the city clerk’s office for South Lake Tahoe City Council positions. The deadline to file was extended until 4 p.m. tomorrow. There are now seven candidates for three council positions.

Mayor Hal Cole, Mark A. Peck, Gunnar Henrioulle and Michael Phillips have entered the race. The filing deadline was extended five days because incumbents Margo Osti and Kevin Cole chose not to seek re-election.

Four other potential candidates have taken out papers from the clerk’s office but have yet to return them with the 20 required voter signatures.

Hal Cole, Peck, Henrioulle and Phillips join candidates Brooke Laine, Bill Crawford and Jerry Oldenkamp. There are three seats open, including the one held by Hal Cole, for November’s election. The top three vote-getters will sit on next year’s council as candidates are elected at large rather than from a district within the city.

Council members Tom Davis and Judy Brown, both elected in 1996, have two years remaining on their terms.

Information for last-minute candidates can be received at the city clerk’s office, 1052 Tata Lane.

City Clerk Angela Peterson’s and City Treasurer Stephen Wysong’s offices are also up for re-election. Both are running and neither is opposed at this late stage of candidate filing.

The city’s election will be held Nov. 3.

Editor’s note: The Tahoe Daily Tribune has attempted to get photos of all candidates who have filed for council to run with a story proclaiming their candidacy. The Tribune was unable to photograph Phillips as of press time.
