Seven vie for White’s council seat

As the “ballots went to print,” the list of candidates for the Special Election to fill the late City Councilmember Thomas White’s seat was at seven.
The Board of Elections (BOE) web site lists the candidates as Ruben Wills, running on the “A Better Way” line; “Community First” candidate Nicole Paultre Bell, widow of Sean Bell; “People Come First,” Albert Baldeo; “The Enough Taxes,” Allan W Jennings Jr.; “Voice For Change,” Harpreet Singh Toor; “Obama’s Agenda,” Charles A Bilal; and “All Generations,” Martha Taylor Butler.
White, a Democrat who represented the 28th District, passed away on Friday, August 27 after battling cancer.
The winner of the Special Election on November 2 will serve until 2011, at which point there will be another primary and general election for the remainder of White’s term, through 2013.
