There will be NO primary this spring for the City of Merrill.
Wednesday afternoon City Clerk Bill Heideman told WJMT News that there are no more than two candidates per district, and thus no primary would be necessary.
In District 1, Dan Heil (I) will not run but Chris Malm and Dean Haas will seek to fill the position.
In District 2, Steve Hass (I) faces a challenge from John Spiegelhoff.
In District 6, Dave Sukow (I) will not run but Mark Peterson and Allan Gulke will be on the ballot.
In District 7, Jeremy Thompson (I) will not run, while Rob Norton is running.
Incumbents Ryan Schwartzman (D-3), Kandy Peterson (D-4), John Burgener (D-5) and Ann Caylor (D-8) will run unopposed in their respective districts.
The general election will be held on April 3, 2012.
