Filing packets are now available for pick-up at the City Clerk's office in the Governmental Center for Traverse City residents wishing to run for a city commission or mayoral seat this fall.

The seats of Traverse City Mayor Jim Carruthers and Commissioners Amy Shamroe, Richard Lewis, and Roger Putman are all up for grabs in the November 5 election, leaving four openings on the board. The mayoral term is a two-year term ending in 2021, while the commission term is a four-year term ending in 2023. The four candidates elected to serve on the commission will be sworn in to office on November 11.

Candidates must file nominating petitions and other required documentation with the City Clerk's Office by July 23 at 4pm. Candidates must be city residents over the age of 18 who are registered to vote and not in debt to the city.
