There will be contested races this fall in Humboldt County, just not in the city of Humboldt itself.
The deadline for filing nomination papers for the Tuesday, Nov. 7 city elections has passed, and the ballots are set, with contested races for some positions in several area towns.
In Humboldt, Mayor Dan Scholl is running unopposed for a second term, after first being elected in 2015, after serving a brief time on the Humboldt City Council.
Both of the city’s at-large council seats are up for election.
At-large Council member Kirk Whittlesey will be running for re-election. He will be seeking a four-year term. Whittlesey was appointed to fill the unexpired Council seat of Darrell Rusher in December 2016.
Also running for city council member at-large will be a familiar face in the community, Mike Worthington. Worthington is a retired insurance agent, who has served many years on the Humboldt Park Board.
