Challengers enter Apple Valley council race
Three Apple Valley residents have filed to run against incumbents Tom Goodwin and Ruth Grendahl in the City Council election.
Michael Holsten, Wilma Ruppert and Nicholas Stepka filed their paperwork before the Aug. 14 deadline to run for the two four-year council seats that will be on the ballot in the November general election.
There is no primary election for council seats, and all those who filed for office will be on the ballot for Election Day on Tuesday, Nov. 6, unless they filed an affidavit of withdrawal by Aug. 16.
The current City Council terms of Goodwin and Grendahl expire on Dec. 31. Newly elected council members will begin their terms in January 2013.
