Candidate nomination period for Nov. 8 election opens

The candidate nomination period for the upcoming Nov. 8 election opened on July 18, and several potential political candidates have pulled papers to run for various offices.

The Scotts Valley City Council will have two seats—those currently held by Vice-Mayor Jim Reed and City Councilman Derek Timm—up for election in November. According to the city’s online candidate tracker, two people had come forth as potential candidates as of Tuesday evening: Tyler Crawford and Allan Timms.

Crawford pulled papers on Monday and Timms did so on July 22.

To qualify for the ballot, candidates must collect 20 to 30 signatures from registered voters in the city, district or area in which they are seeking office, and turn in several required election department documents. The nomination period closes on Aug. 12, save for offices in which an incumbent decides to not run for reelection. In that case, the nomination period will extend for five days.
