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.
