Five candidates qualified for the three at-large seats on the city council. Political newcomers Anne Coles, Lisa Newberry and Femi Oduwole join incumbent Danny Ford as well as former councilman and mayor Mike Jones for the vote. The three candidates with the highest final vote tally will earn a seat on the city council.
