Dec. 17 was the first day for candidates to file to run for office in Brentwood. Until today no one had filed for mayor — Wednesday morning Louise R. Charboneau, of 8830 Madge Avenue, became the first. Her name is on the updated sheet taped to the city clerk’s office.
Charboneau has been attending most meetings of the board of aldermen, and many other city boards and commissions for several years as a resident. In December she objected to the city removing trees at Oak Tree Park and in January she spoke out against the city removing a resident’s oak tree at a board of alderman meeting.
She couldn’t be reached immediately for comment on her decision to run for mayor.
Mayor Chris Thornton hasn’t given any word that he plans to run for a second term.
The incumbent aldermen for each ward are the only ones to file for alderman.
- Ward 1: David Plufka
- Ward 2: Brandon Wegge
- Ward 3: Steve Lochmoeller
- Ward 4: Tom Kramer
