With the filing deadline still more than a month away, two citizens have pulled petitions to run for Saline City Council.
Clerk Terri Royal said Tuesdays that Jack Ceo, seeking a third term, and Brian Cassise, who would be seeking his first term, have pulled nominating petitions from the Clerk's office.
Ceo, Linda TerHaar and Heidi McClelland are the three council members whose terms expire at the end of 2019.
Reached by email, TerHaar said she is not yet ready to announce her intentions. McClelland, in the Saline Posts Facebook group, said last week she's not yet decided whether she'll run.
Ceo, Saline's former Deputy Police Chief and a longtime officer in Ann Arbor, is running.
"I feel that I still have work to do on the City Council. I would hope that people think I have done a good enough job to date to earn their support for a third term," Ceo said.
Cassise filed to run last year but failed to appear on the ballot because city officials ruled he'd not lived in the city long enough to run for office.
Nominating Petitions and other qualifying documents with the Clerk’s office by 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 23, 2019. Petition packets and information to become a candidate are available in the Clerk’s office at 100 N. Harris Street.
