More Upper Valley residents have filed to run for their respective city councils.

In Rexburg, there are three council seats up for grabs. Incumbents Brad Wolfe and Mikel Walker have filed to run for office. Longtime council member Christopher Mann opted not to run again. All three positions are for four-year terms.

Those running for city council seats include the following: Luke S. Walker, Crystal Hill, Kelly H. McKamey, Colin D. Erickson, Jacob S. Flamm, Greg Blacker and Robert E. Chambers.

In Sugar City, two men are running for one, two-year council term. Incumbent Glenn H. Dayley hopes to retain the seat that he was appointed to last year. He took the place of former City Councilman Steve Davis. Timothy J. Frogue has filed to run against Dayley for that seat.

Incumbents Catherine H. Nielsen and Connie D. Fogle will also run for office again. Their council seats are not being contested. Gov. Brad Little appointed Fogle to the council in 2019 after the resignation of three council members.

In Ashton, two city council seats are available. Incumbent John Kaelberer has filed paperwork to run again. He was appointed to the council last year to fill the vacancy created after Ashton residents voted then Councilman Tom Mattingly in as mayor during the 2019 election.

Longtime councilman Tadd Atchley is not running again. Instead, former city council candidates Sheryl Hill and John Scafe have filed paperwork to run for Atchley’s four-year position.

The St. Anthony City Council has four council seats including the mayor’s position available this election year.

Mayor Don Powell has filed paperwork to run for another four-year term as mayor. He is running uncontested.

St. Anthony incumbents Rod Nichols, Chad Quayle and Rod Willmore will run for four-year terms respectively. John L. Sanders has filed to run for one of those council seats.

The St. Anthony City Council is made up of six council members that also include Rick Hill, Wendy Sykes and Russ Rubert.

The filing deadline for candidates was Sept. 3. The election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
