One potential candidate has been disqualified from the upcoming city election, officials said Tuesday morning.
Floyd Miller, who filed papers for the Ward 7 alderman’s position, was disqualified because he did not have the required 50 signatures from ward residents, according the Election Commissioner Bettye Chamberlian.
Ward Seven will have four candidates: Incumbent Ronnie Merriman, Joe Ward, Fredrick Tidwell and Robert Shuffield.
Commissioners Maurice Stinson, Edner Baker and Chamberlain are still working on the forms turned in by Ward 2 hopefuls, Incumbent Fredreick “Pete” Wilson, Ret. Col. Tim Freelon and Stephan Whaley. An update will be posted here when available.
The city election is set for May 4.
