Four Baker City Council positions up for election in November

By Jayson Jacoby, The Baker City Herald

Prospective candidates can file between June 4 and Aug. 26

Four of the seven positions on the Baker City Council will be up for election in the Nov. 4 general election.

The terms for councilors Clair Button, Roger Coles, Dennis Dorrah and Barbara Johnson expire Dec. 31, 2014.

Due to the clause in the city charter that limits councilors to serving no more than two consecutive terms, neither Dorrah nor Button is eligible to run for re-election.

Coles and Johnson are eligible to run.

The top three vote-getters in November will be elected to four-year terms.

The fourth-place finisher will serve a two-year term.

All four terms will begin with the Council's first meeting in early January 2015.
