Two Council Contenders Drop Out
Aldermanic candidates in the second and eighth wards have withdrawn their petitions for office, leaving those seats uncontested, the 'Evanston Review' reports.
James C. Dyer, who was running in the second ward, and eighth ward candidate Thomas Just are now off the ballot, the Review reports.
That leaves only two seats contested in the April elections. As Patch has previously reported, Edward Tivador has filed to run against first ward incumbent Judy Fiske, while Mark Sloane is running against sixth ward incumbent Mark Tendam.
Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl, City Clerk Rodney Greene, Alderman Peter Braithwaite (2nd) Alderman Melissa Wynne (3rd), Alderman Donald Wilson (4th), Alderman Delores Holmes (5th), Alderman Jane Grover (7th), Alderman Ann Rainey (8th) and Alderman Colleen Burrus (9th will not face opposition for another term.
