With only four days left to file, it’s looking like the only contested Valley race could be for the three seats on the Sonoma City Council.
As of Monday, two candidates have filed their nominating papers to run for the City Council in the November general election, while six others have pulled papers but have yet to file. Rachel Hundley was the first to file for the council on July 30, while Madolyn Agrimonti filed the following day. Would-be candidates who have pulled papers but have yet to file include incumbent Ken Brown, Lynda Corrado, Cameron Stuckey, Jack Wagner, Andrew Sawicki and Gary Edwards, who pulled his papers on Monday.
Both Mayor Tom Rouse and two-term incumbent Steve Barbose have declared they will not seek re-election.
If neither Barbose nor Rouse files by Friday, which is the last day to file unless an incumbent doesn’t file, the nominating period is extended until Wednesday, Aug. 13.
In other races around the Valley, incumbent Jeff Kunde, who has filed for re-election, has no opposition for his seat on the Santa Rosa Junior College board.
