Never miss a local story.
There will be a Democratic primary for mayor Tuesday between incumbent Jack Scoville, Councilman Rudolph Bradley and newcomer Marty Tennant.
The winner of that contest faces Republican Richard Powers in November.
In the council race, incumbents Jeanette Ard and Brendon Barber are seeking re-election. They will face newcomers Hobson Henry Milton and Doris Simmons in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
