Six people file for three open positions on Eudora City Council

January 25, 2011

Six people will compete for three Eudora City Council positions this spring.

Two council members and the Eudora mayor are in the middle of their terms, and their seats are not up for election.

Ruth Hughes, Maria Nelson and Jeff Peterson are the council members whose terms are expiring. Hughes and Nelson re-filed for election. They were joined by Kenneth Massey, Jerry Trober Sr., John Fiore and Chris Fiedler.

Douglas County Clerk Jamie Shew said there would not be a primary. Eudora falls under a rule that, in this case, says 10 people would have to file for a primary to be needed. Lawrence follows a different rule for determining when a primary is necessary.

The general election is April 5.
