Rosemount City Council race to have primary; still one day left to file
The city of Rosemount will have a primary Aug. 14 after more than four candidates have filed to fill two, four-year terms on the Rosemount City Council.
With still a day to go until the filing deadline at 5 p.m. Tuesday, three others had filed as of Sun Thisweek’s last report.
Vanessa Olson Demuth and Wade Miller, both current Rosemount Planning Commission members, and Joseph P. Zanmiller, a current Minnesota Valley Transit Authority board member, have filed.
Maila C. Ellefson and current Council Member Jeff Weisensel filed within the first two days the filing period opened May 22.
The terms of council members Matt Kearney and Weisensel expire at the end of the year. After the primary will whittle the field to four, the seats will be won by the top two vote-getters in the general election Nov. 6.
Affidavits of candidacy can be filled out from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on regular business days at Rosemount City Hall, 2875 145th St. W. The deadline is at 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 5.
