Council Candidates: Something Borrowed, Something Blue, Something Old, Something New 

A veritable grab-bag of candidates will be vying for the District 9, Position 1 city council seat being vacated by current council chairman Scott McCormick, who is leaving to take the helm at the Plough Foundation. Among those qualifying by Thursday’s deadline to run in the November special election to replace McCormick were (clockwise from top left): Antonio “2-Shay” Parkinson (here with daughter); Kemp Conrad; Paul Schaffer; and John Willingham. But there are more.

Others are: Lester Lit, Arnett Montague III, Regina Morrison Newman, Jimmy Ogle, Brian Stephens, Richard Stringer, and Mary Wilder.
