City council candidates file
There will be at least three new faces on the Vermillion City Council in the near future.

The following individuals have filed nominating petitions to participate in the June 3 city election.

Central Ward Alderman Roger Jeck is being challenged by Jenny French.


There will be no race in the Southeast Ward. Steve Ward has filed petitions to run for alderman from that ward, but incumbent Jere Chapman apparently has decided not to seek another term.

Long-time Councilman Kevin Annis, who currently serves as the city council's vice president, has also decided not to run for re-election to represent the Northeast Ward. Vermillion businessman Howard Willson has filed nominating petitions to become a candidate for that ward.

No one is challenging Clarene Meins, who has filed nominating petitions for the Northwest Ward. Currently, no one is representing that ward. Incumbent Nathan Adams recently resigned from the city council to seek new employment.

Ward, Willson and Meins will automatically take office July 7.
