The race for council seats in Naperville is now wider as two former city councilmen step into the running for the upcoming spring election.
Attorney Kevin Gallaher served on city council from 1995 to 2002, stepping down from his role after taking a position with a local law firm.
Dick Furstenau had a longer run, from 1999 to 2011, and is currently retired. He lost the bid for his fourth term on council in the last mid-term election.
Besides the two newest candidates, packets have already been picked up by over fifteen other Naperville residents. At least half the seats are up for the coming election, as only four of the current council members are expected to seek new terms.
Completed petitions must be filed between November 17 and 24.
If more than 32 people submit paper work, a February primary will be held to reduce the field down to four candidates for each of the eight available council positions.
