Filings are complete for the Falcon Heights City Council and the Roseville District 623 School Board, with the city boasting contested races.
Randy Gustafson is seeking re-election as Falcon Heights mayor in the November election. The City Council appointed Gustafson to replace Peter Lindstrom, who resigned to join the Metropolitan Council last spring. Lindstrom is being challenged by Dave Thomas.
The Falcon Heights City Council has two at-large seats open, with three candidates running, none of whom have served on the council before. Pamela Harris, who was appointed to fill a vacant seat, is not seeking re-election, and the other seat was vacated when Gustafson took over as mayor.
The candidates for Falcon Heights City Council are Kay Andrews, Adam Sychla, and Yakasah Wehyee.
Meanwhile, Falcon Heights ballots will feature candidates for the Roseville District 623 School Board. Three of the six terms are expiring: Todd Anderson, the current treasurer; Mike Boguszewski, the current clerk, and Erin Azer.
Three candidates have filed for the three seats. Anderson and Boguszewski are seeking re-election; Rose Chu will also be on the ballot. Azer did not file for re-election.—Anne Holzman
