Lawns signs have started showing up across Ward 5 for the Sept.10 run off election between Bill Humphrey, Rena Getz* and Kathy Winters, who are running to fill the ward council seat currently held by Councilor John Rice, who chose not to seek reelection.
This is the only run off in Newton this year. Only registered voters in Ward 5 will be able to vote in this contest, which will narrow the field to two candidates for a second face-off on Nov. 5. But everyone can comment here! So share your thoughts, endorsements or other reflections in the comments section. (Also if you know of any candidate forums, please share.)
*I wasn’t able to find a campaign website for Rena Getz. If there’s one please let us know about it in the comments section.
