Voters in Rincon will go to the polls today to fill three of the six seats on Rincon City Council.

Incumbents Reese Browher and Paul Wendelken are running for re-election while the third council seat up for election is open. Council member Ken Baxley, appointed to serve the unexpired term of Ann Daniel, is not seeking re-election.

Candidates running for the election include pastor Greg Brunson, landscaper Harry Capwell, real estate agent and former Board of Education member James Dasher, former Rincon mayor and council member George Saraf and local business manager Teresa Witt.

The top three vote-getters will assume the council seats.

The polls, at the Vernon C. Hinely Center, will be open from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

Elections for the Guyton and Springfield city council seats also were scheduled to be held today but have been cancelled. There was no opposition in Guyton for the three seats, held by Mayor Michael Garvin, Alderman Les Pevey and Alderman Dr. Brenda Lovett.

Springfield’s three council seats up for election also have no opposition, though there will be one new council member sworn in.
Springfield incumbents Troy Allen and Gary Weitman are running without opposition. Weitman was appointed to council to serve out the term of Max Neidlinger. Steve Shealy is running unopposed for the seat being vacated by retiring council  member Butch Kieffer.
