The candidate filing period for this year's election in Sheridan and Sheridan County will be drawing to a close later this week. At the end of the business day Tuesday, there were only two races that were contested, the mayoral race for the City of Sheridan and one of the Ward 1 seats for Sheridan City Council.
There are three candidates for the Ward 1 seat that is currently held by Councilor Ryan Mulholland, who will not be seeking reelection. One of those candidates, Shelleen Smith, serves as the Chairwoman for the Sheridan City Planning Commission and the President of the North Main Association. She says that running for Council is just another step in her progression.
Along with serving on the planning commission and North Main Association Board, Smith is the Owner of Presto Print, Inc. in Sheridan. Click here for a list of candidates who've filed.
