City spokesman Adam Mayberry said Sunday this might be a historical first for the city, which has three Wards up for a vote this election cycle. Ward 1 represented by Julia Ratti, Ward 3 represented by Ron Smith and Ward 5 represented by Ron Schmitt were due to appear on the ballot, Mayberry said, but all three automatically will be re-elected.
“I really believe this says a lot about the leadership and management of our city,” Mayberry said in an email.
