As of the deadline at 5pm today, there were nine candidates for the three open positions on the Half Moon Bay Council.

This should be an interesting race, with only one incumbent (Naomi Patridge) and one former city council member (Deborah Ruddock), one perennial candidate (George Muteff) and six newcomers (Allan Alifano, Sofia Freer, Dan Handler, Charles Hoelzel, Rick Kowalcyzk, and Kerri Lake) running for seats.

According to City Clerk Siobhan Smith, "Due to the fact that the last 7 individuals filed today, I do not have verification from the County elections office for whether those candidates had sufficient nominating signatures. I should know that by mid-day tomorrow."

We’ll be learning more about these candidates over the next two and a half months. Share your thoughts in comments on this story.
