Single candidate files petitions for Linn's council post
PRESCOTT - Only one name will appear on the ballot in the special city election that will take place in November to choose a permanent replacement for former Prescott Councilwoman Tammy Linn.
By the 5 p.m. Wednesday deadline, City Clerk Elizabeth Burke reported that she had received completed petitions from only Alan Carlow.
The candidate, who lists the Yavapai Hills-area Sunrise Boulevard as his address, submitted petitions containing 888 signatures, Burke said.
Another prospective candidate, Nichole Seguin, took out petitions earlier this month but did not file the necessary petitions by the deadline.
The city called the special election to occur in conjunction with its general election on Nov. 8. The special vote was necessary after Linn resigned from her council seat in July.
The winning candidate will serve the remaining two years in Linn's unexpired term.
