Two men will vie for the City Council seat vacated last month by Preston Blackmon’s death.
Blackmon, who was 82, had served as the District 1 councilman for 31 years.
His son, Racarda Blackmon, and Kenneth Hood are running for the seat.
Because of Blackmon’s death, a special District 1 filing period started Aug. 22 and ended Thursday.
The winner will serve the remainder of Blackmon’s term, which has about two years left.
