On March 26, 2021, the City Secretary received a candidate withdrawal request from Brenden Moore, who previously sought to represent District 2. The April 13, 2021 election will no longer take place and sitting Councilwoman Sharon Hughes will retain her seat. 

"We thank Mr. Moore for his interest in public service and wish him well in all his future endeavors," said City Secretary Renee Bensley. "We remind residents in District 2 that absentee ballots do not need to be returned and the designated polling place will be closed on April 13." 

Section 10-19 of the City Code provides that if there is only one candidate for office, the Election Board shall declare the candidate elected and no formal election for that office shall be held. The Election Board will meet April 15 at 5:00 p.m. to officially certify results and the Council organization meeting, which will include a swearing-in ceremony for Districts 1, 2 and 4 will be held at 6:00 p.m. on April 22.
