Last Call for Candidates

The qualification period for Belle Isle Commissioner candidates begins this Monday, November 11 at 12:00 p.m. Candidates from Districts 1 and 7 are up for election.

At this time, it appears that at least one competing candidate will be running from District 1. But I have not yet learned of any competing candidate planning to run in District 7.

Democracy is meaningless without competition. Belle Isle residents have not voted for a City official since 2006 because of a lack of competition. It's time for this to change.

Are you ready to serve? Candidate packets can be picked up at City Hall. Completed packets must be submitted by Friday, November 15 at 12 p.m. You can find your district number on this map:
