As the deadline approaches for candidates in Surprise to throw their hat in the ring for this year’s election, another term for Mayor Skip Hall looks promising.
The mayor so far has no challengers, with less than a month to go before the April 6 deadline.
The city will see at least one new elected official. Councilwoman Nancy Hayden in District 2 has decided not to run for reelection.
Four of six seats on the Surprise City Council are on the Aug. 4 primary election ballot: Hayden’s seat; Patrick Duffy’s seat in District 3; Ken Remley’s seat in District 4; and David Sanders’ seat in District 5.
Residents vote only for the council seat representing their district. (The city has a tool and a map on its website so residents can find their districts.)
Besides Hayden, the incumbents are all running for reelection. Remley is the only one running unopposed at this point.
