Sixth possible candidate emerges for Basalt council race

Staff report

A sixth potential candidate has emerged in the race for three Basalt Town Council seats in the April 3 election.

Chris Mullin was the latest Basalt resident to pick up a nomination petition, according to Town Clerk Pam Schilling.

Those previously taking out petitions were Carol Hawk, Todd Hartley, William Infante, Rick Stevens and incumbent Bernie Grauer. None have been returned yet, Schilling said.

Time is running short to enter the race. Nomination petitions must be returned by the end of the day Monday. They must be signed by 25 registered electors.

Incumbent Mark Kittle announced he would not seek re-election. Incumbent Gary Tennenbaum hasn’t announced his intentions yet.

All three terms are for four years.
