No candidate for Fulton’s third ward as filing deadline looms

The official filing deadline is just around the corner on Jan. 17, but there still are no official candidates for the open Ward 3 seat on the Fulton City Council, and thus far there are no contested races in the other wards.

Ward 3 Councilman John Pautz, who is in the middle of his third two-year term in the council, said he decided not to run because he felt it was time for a new face on the city’s governing board.

“I think there was a lot accomplished while I was there, and it’s time for somebody else to take their turn,” said Pautz, listing infrastructure improvements, work on the city water towers, construction of the new fire station and purchase of a new building for the police station as projects he was proud of being involved in.
