Robert Simpson files as only candidate for Ward 1 City Council seat

Staff Reports

The Piedmont City Council Ward 1 seat filing period closed at 5 p.m., yesterday, Wednesday, Feb. 6, and Piedmont resident Robert Simpson was the only person who filed.

The Ward 1 City Council seat, currently held by Larry Gage, will be Simpson’s after the April 2 election.

Canadian County Election Board Assistant Secretary Vada Holstein said as of Thursday, no one other than Simpson had filed. She said he will atomically be elected as Ward 1 City Councilman.

Gage decided not to run again for Piedmont City Council Ward 1, so he could spend time with his family and his grandchildren.

Simpson is also a former Piedmont City Councilman.
