Council elections across the Hi-Line
It's that time again when, in between state and federal elections, democracy trickles down closer to home.
All of the cities in Hill, Blaine and Chouteau counties are wrapping up the first stage in the process of picking half of their city council representatives.
With all filings closing at 5 p. m. Thursday, many of the seats only have one candidate running unopposed so far.
Some don't even have that.
In Chinook, two of the four seats are up for their four-year terms.
The first ward will, this year, lose its occupant of the last 20 years, Freda Bryson.
