Two West Sacramento school board seats, two city council seats, and the mayor’s position will all be on the ballot on November 4.

The filing period for challengers interested in these office is underway. It ends on August 8.

City offices up for election are those held by Mayor Christopher Cabaldon and city council members Chris Ledesma and Mark Johannessen. The mayor’s term is for two years, and a council member serves four.

For information and candidacy paperwork, visit the city clerk’s office at 1110 West Capitol Avenue to pick up the necessary documents. Appointments are encouraged but not required. Call 617-4500.

The school board seats up for election in Washington Unified School District are currently held by Adam Menke and Sarah Kirby-Gonzalez. The terms are four years.
