Northfield City Council - Ward 4
Only those living in Northfield's Ward 4 will be tasked with hitting the polls this year to officially elect a candidate to fill the seat vacated by Patrick Ganey last year. Ganey resigned from his post after accepting a position at Middlebury College in Vermont. Jessica Peterson White was appointed by the council last fall to sit in Ganey's seat until this fall's special election.
There are three candidates, including Peterson White, running for the seat. Click on the name of the candidate to learn more about them:
