There are still 244 days until the next Bloomington City Council election, but three candidates have already announced plans to run.
The latest is Georgene Chissell, a small-business owner and Democratic precinct committeeman who's running in Ward 2. Chissell announced her candidacy July 25. The election is April 2, 2019.
Ward 2 includes much of southwest Bloomington, with a mix of single-family homes but also more transient residents in apartments and mobile homes. It's currently represented by Alderman David Sage.
It's unclear if Sage intends to seek re-election next April. He did not return several requests for comment from GLT.
