One candidate was added and another deleted as the city's elections staff finalized their candidate list for the Oct. 15 election.

Added as a candidate for a council seat in Ward 4 is Brent Thompson. His nomination papers were initially rejected because four of the 25 necessary signatures had no fixed address. City clerk David Edey sought a legal opinion and has now ruled that a fixed address was not necessary so long as the candidate verifies that the signers live in the ward.

That brings a total of 15 candidates running for two council seats in Ward 4.

Rory Koopmans, a candidate for public school trustee, has withdrawn his name from the race. Candidates have 24 hours after filing nomination papers to withdraw their names.
