Highland Race Features Dozen Hopefuls In Five Council Wards

Twelve candidates will compete in the historic Highland City Council race in November, the first such election to feature by-district match-ups after a series of legal challenges ended in a court ruling that the city must ditch its at-large elections and adopt a ward system. In District 1, Jesus Chavez, Jorge Heridia and Ray Hilfer will vie against one another.
Tony Cifuentes and Anaeli Solano will go head to head in District 2. Penny Lilburn, an incumbent and holdover from the at-large system, is unopposed in District 3. In District 4, incumbent John Timmer has attracted challengers Frank Adomitis, Christy Marin and Rusty Rutland.
Larry McCallon, another longtime incumbent, will need to get by Jerry Martin to remain in office.
