Larry L. Kieft has submitted a nominating petition to the Grand Haven City Clerk’s Office to run for re-election for one of the two BLP trustee seats on the ballot this year.
Seats currently held by trustees Kieft and Gerry Witherell are up this year. Both are six-year terms.
It was announced by the city last week that Witherell has submitted his nominating petition to seek another term.
Candidates seeking a place on the 2017 city ballot need to file by 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 25, in order to meet the deadline.
A primary election will be scheduled for Aug. 8 if more than four people run for the two BLP trustee seats. Otherwise, the general election is Nov. 7.
According to the clerk’s office, due to election law, official validation of petitions will not occur until the filing deadline has passed and signatures on all petition forms have been verified.
