NO POLITICAL COMEBACK FOR E. RILEY
At the noon hour today, candidate qualifying opens for Seneca’s March 8 election. Expiring are the seats of Mayor Dan Alexander and four councilmen–Joel Ward, Al Gaines, Ronnie O’Kelley, and Anthony Smith. Alexander says he’ll be a candidate for re-election. Ward, Gaines, O’Kelley, and Smith are also eligible to run again. Not running this year is a familiar face to city government. Former councilman Ernest Riley, who missed re-election by a whisker two years ago, recently said he will not be running this time.
