After weeks of considering whether to run for city commission, Dick Brady said he will not run to fill the remainder of his appointed term.
Brady, owner of Brady Electric and other businesses, filled the spot vacated by former commissioner and police chief Kim Nuesse after she left in December.
Commissioners Julie Farrar and Diedre Cole are up for re-election and have said they will file for the spots.
Terms expire for commissioners Dave Waddington and Dan Kaman, who cannot run again because they’ve reached their two-term limits.
Residents Keith Grohe, a Cedar Fair maintenance employee, and Jeff Smith, co-owner of Sandusky Hardware, plan to run for two of the seats.
Candidates will have to declare whether they are filing for one of the four, four-year terms, or the unexpired, two-year term.
The filing deadline is at 4 p.m. Aug. 10 in the Erie County Board of Elections.
