Candidates for Mayor and Ward Councilor in Wards Two, Five and Six gathered at the City Clerk’s Office on Monday August 5th to witness the drawing to determine the ballot position of their names for the upcoming September 17th City Preliminary Election.
The new City Charter requires that ballot position be determined by lottery. Historically, ballot position was determined by alphabetical order with incumbents listed in the first position. The Preliminary Ballot as chosen randomly by the City Clerk will be printed as follows:
Carlo DeMaria, Jr.
Millie J. Cardello
Robert Van Campen
Councilor Ward Two
Thomas Mills, III
Catherine Tomassi Hicks
Another drawing will be held after the preliminary to determine ballot position for the November General Election.
