Last week was the filing deadline for candidates running for local office to submit the needed paperwork to run in the 2023 spring election.
There are eight alder districts with more than two candidates in the race, meaning that all eight of those districts will head to a primary election in February.
One of those districts is District 2, representing the area on the north side of the isthmus, and WORT Producer Nate Wegehaupt kicked off our coverage of the candidates headed to a spring primary this February by talking with Colin Barushok, one of the three candidates running for that district.
The Primary Election will take place on February 21, and the 2023 spring general election will take place on April 4.
