Maplewood resident Owen Skoler has collected all the signatures he needs (50) to file to run for the vacant Ward 1 on city council, and two more petitions have gone out as well.
The seat became vacant because former council member Steven Moseley is leaving the area.
On his candidate Facebook page, Skoler said, “I truly appreciate everyone’s time and conversation. I know it’s not easy opening a door to a stranger. On to City Hall Tuesday for filing!”
In addition to Skoler, Kyle Oberle, of the 2500 block of Oakland Avenue and Tyler Merkel of the 7600 block of Williams Avenue have also picked up petitions.
Filing opened on December 12, and closes on January 16. The election will be held on April 3, 2018.
