Maplewood to hold a primary election for city council seats

The filing period closed June 5 for Maplewood residents looking to become candidates for the two available city council seats.

Incumbents Marylee Abrams and Kathleen “Kathy” Juenemann have both filed for re-election, and they are joined in candidacy by three others: Kevin Berglund, Tyler Hamilton and Nikki Villavicencio.

Because so many residents filed for the two open seats, a primary election will be held Aug. 14 to strike one name off the candidacy list before the Nov. 6 general election.

The mayor’s office in Maplewood is also up for election this fall, but because only two filed for candidacy, there will be no primary election for the position. 

On Election Day incumbent Mayor Nora Slawik will be squaring off against Margaret Behrens, who currently serves on the Ramsey Conservation District Board.
