As of Monday, City Clerk Cat Hazen said incumbent Mayor Shirley Marquardt is facing competition from four challengers: Ralph Harvey, Frank Kelty, Christopher Price, and Vincent Tutiakoff Sr.

There's also a five-way contest for City Council seat C. Incumbent Roger Rowland is vying for reelection against Kenneth Bezold, Richard Campbell, Darin Nicholson, and Jeffrey Treannie.
