Filing for Victoria's local elections opened this week. There are three openings at the city level and three at the school district.

As of 10:30 a.m. Friday, we have three four candidates on the ballot: incumbent Will Armstrong and Richard Andrew Deases both running for mayor, former councilman Gabriel Soliz running for District 5 councilman, and incumbent Tom Halepaska for District 6.

District 5's incumbent Joe Truman has not yet submitted his application, but said he has been praying over it. Neither has the District 6 incumbent Tom Halepaska, who Tuesday evening joked that he was busy baking cakes this week.

It seems we just wrapped up election coverage for November, so in trying to get back in the swing of it, I looked to a bit of election humor.
