29th Ward Candidates Challenged
The crowded 29th ward aldermanic race may get smaller if six candidates are unable to overcome objections to their candidacy paperwork. The Austin Talks web site broke the story of one woman challenging half of the 12 candidates who are seeking the 29th ward seat. Marjorie Fields filed objections to the number of signatures required to obtain the right to be on the ballot. Two of the candidates who are being challenged submitted about 2,000 signatures each to meet the 473 signatures required. The Board of Elections held a hearing on the objections Monday, December 15, however the outcome of the hearing is not yet known.
