10-1, Take Two

Five City Council incumbents up for re-election this November

Believe it or not, it's been nearly a year and a half since the first 10-1 City Council took the newly expanded dais. This Novem­ber, half of Council's seats will be up for grabs again. Five members drew a short straw in 2014, giving them two-year terms, in order to allow for staggered elections in the future. As fundraising season begins, we kick off our campaign coverage by taking a look at the incumbents' brief tenure.
