Two of the three incumbents in the Tonkawa city elections this year have announced that they are seeking re-election. The city election is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2. The filings were held February 4-6 at the election board office in the Kay County Courthouse in Newkirk.
At press time Tuesday, only ward three incumbent Jack Evans and ward four incumbent Rick Allan had filed for the posts. The city positions that are up for election are one at-large, ward three and ward four. All three are for four year terms on the city council. Positions on the city council are non-paid and non-partisan.
At-large councilman Charles Conaghan is the lone incumbent that will not seek re-election. Ward three incumbent Jack Evans and ward four incumbent Rick Allan both previously announced they will seek re-election.
Councilmen Kenneth Smith and Dr. Glenn Cope still have two years of their term remaining.
