With longtime Mayor Andy Pendleton having decided not to run for re-election this year, Rainelle’s list of candidates for various offices has blossomed, both in terms of those whose names are on the ballot and those who are running write-in campaigns.
Doris Vandall is on the ballot as a candidate for mayor, while Jason Smith has signed up as a write-in candidate for that office.
Current Town Council member Robin Williams and Bill Bell are on the ballot running for recorder.
Nine people — including write-in candidate Brian Day — are vying for five council seats. On the ballot are incumbents Ron Fleshman, Gary Harris, David Spitzer and Monica Smathers Venable; and challengers Martha Livesay, Jimmy Matheney, Danny Milam and John Wyatt.
Tuesday is election day.
