WILLIAMS, Ariz. — With the April 4 deadline now behind them, six candidates have officially filed to run for three Williams City Council seats in the Aug. 2 Primary Election. One candidate is running for the position of mayor.

According to Williams City Clerk Pam Galvan, Don Dent is the only candidate for mayor.

John Calley, Michelle Campbell, Ken Edes, Bernie Hiemenz and Lee Payne are running to fill three council seats. Those seats are currently held by Dent, Hiemenz and Payne.

Dent has served seven terms on the Williams City Council. He was appointed to an open position in 1991, and won re-election the following year. His current term is set to expire Dec. 31.

Hiemenz and Payne are seeking re-election to the city council. Dent chose to run for mayor instead of seeking re-election to his council seat.

The primary election takes place Aug. 2, and the general election is set for Nov. 8.
