Two more Maplewood city council hopefuls picked up petitions on Monday, adding to the three already out to run for Ward 3 council member.
The first three petitions out were returned to city hall on Monday — Patrick Richards, Jennifer Schmidt and Steven Terelmes returned their petitions with the required 50 signatures to run for the council seat, which will be open after council member Barry Greenberg is sworn in as the new mayor on Tuesday. The signatures will need to be certified by the county election board.
Also on Monday, Patrick Richards (Walter Avenue) and Clayton Gissler (Elm Avenue) picked up petitions to run for the seat.
There will be no primary election. Whichever candidate on the ballot gets the most votes in the August 8 special election will win the seat.
