One Kuna City Council seat will be open this fall. Doug Hoiland said he will not be running for his seat when his term ends. He found serving on city council was at times not what he expected. “City government is a lot like the Titanic,” he said with a grin. “You move the rudder and it moves so slow.”

Also up for re-election is Richard Cardoza who told KMN this week that he has decided to
run again.

The candidate filing period opens at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, August 26, 2013 and closes at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September, 6, 2013. Election Day is Tuesday, November 5, 2013.

According to the city, “Candidates for city elected office are required to file a Declaration of Candidacy specifying the office sought and affirming that the individual is a qualified city elector, meaning:  at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen, the candidate’s primary residence must be within the city, the address of the candidate’s voter registration must match the residence address provided on the candidate’s declaration, and the candidate must
be a resident of the city for at least 30 days prior to submitting their declaration.”

Candidates must also pay a nonrefundable filing fee of $40 or file a petition of Candidacy signed by at least five qualified city electors with the signatures verified by the County
Clerk’s Office.

Declarations of Candidacy are available at City Hall in the office of the City Clerk at 763 W. Avalon Street from the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
