Filing to open in Burnsville; incumbents seek re-election
Election filing for Burnsville mayor and two City Council seats opens on Tuesday, May 22, and remains open through 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 5.
All three incumbents plan to seek re-election: Mayor Elizabeth Kautz and council members Dan Gustafson and Mary Sherry.
Terms are for four years.
Affidavits of candidacy are available through the city clerk’s office at City Hall, 100 Civic Center Parkway, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays during the filing period. There is a $5 filing fee.
To file for council or mayor, candidates must be Burnsville residents who are eligible to vote in Minnesota and would be at least 21 when assuming office.
Affidavits won’t be accepted on Monday, May 28, Memorial Day, when city offices will be closed.
A municipal primary will be held on Aug. 14 if the number of candidates is one more than twice the number of people to be elected. That means a primary will be held if five or more residents file for council or if three or more file for mayor.
