Russ Lyman Qualifies for Longmont City Council Special Election Ballot
Ward 1 Longmont City Council candidate Russ Lyman on Wednesday cured a deficiency in the petition signatures he originally submitted on Monday and has qualified for the Feb. 27 special election ballot, according to the City Clerk’s Office.
Ward 1 voters will now get to choose Lyman, Josh Goldberg or Tim Waters in the mail-ballot election to fill the vacant council seat, which represents most of Longmont east of Main Street.
Waters and Goldberg had earlier been determined to meet the requirement that a candidate for the seat had to submit petitions signed by at least 25 registered Ward 1 voters. Lyman’s original petitions that he turned in on Monday were one signature short of that 25 registered voters minimum, but he had until Friday to correct that deficiency with one or more replacement signatures.
