Council election is mail-in

Voters must select from six candidates to fill three seats on the five-member Durango City Council. Ballots will be mailed to city voters Friday and must be returned by April 2, the last day of the election.

The three top vote-getters will serve four-year terms and be sworn in to office at the regular council meeting April 16.

Councilors are elected on an at-large basis. Terms of office are staggered, so two councilors would be elected during the next election cycle in 2015.

Running for office this year are architect Dean Brookie, Durango Premier Vacation Rental owner Keith Brant, incumbent Christina Rinderle, Ska Brewing Co. server Kristen Smith, technology journalist Jordan Golson and former Durango school board member Floyd Patterson.

For more information, visit www.durangogov.org or call the city clerk's office at 375-5010.

For voter registration, call the La Plata County Clerk and Recorder's Office at 382-6294.

Live streaming of candidate forum

The Durango Herald will stream live the City Council candidates forum that will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. today at City Hall. To watch, visit www.durangoherald.com. It also will be broadcast on television on City Span 10.

The League of Women Voters of La Plata County is sponsoring the debate and will be taking written questions from the audience in the council chambers at City Hall.

Six candidates are competing for three seats on the council. They are Keith Brant, owner of Durango Premier Vacation Rental; Jordan Golson, a technology journalist; incumbent Christina Rinderle; architect Dean Brookie; former Durango 9-R School District board member Floyd Patterson; and Ska Brewing Co. server Kristen Smith.

The mail-in election will be decided April 2.
