ROCKLAND, Maine — A member of the city’s harbor management commission has become the first person to take out papers to run for the city council.

Louise MacLellan-Ruf took out nomination papers Friday. There are two seats up for election in November.

The incumbents — Mayor William Clayton and Councilor Larry Pritchett — have said they are undecided on whether they will seek re-election.

And on the school board side of the election, incumbents Donald Robishaw Jr. and William Pearce have taken out papers to seek re-election. No other candidates have come forward for the two open seats representing Rockland on the Regional School Unit 13 Board.

Candidates have until Sept. 23 to file nomination papers to make the Nov. 5 ballot.
