Seven potential candidates have officially dipped their feet in the political waters and one has officially filed for a council race that could turn Pacfica's highest elected governing body upside down.
Three seats on the five-member council are up for grabs on Nov. 6; two full four-year terms and one two-year term.
The filing deadline is Friday, however that date is expected to be pushed back to Aug. 15.
Municipal elections in the county are extended five days in elections in which eligible incumbents don't file. Pacifica Mayor Pete DeJarnatt told Patch he will not seek reelection and hasn't officially requested required paperwork from the city clerk's office.
Incumbent Mary Ann Nihart is among the six potential candidates to pull such papers in an election that could reshape a majority of the sitting council.
Victor Spano, a member of the city's Economic Development Committee, is the only candidate who'd filed for council run as of Friday, according to the city clerk's office.
"There's the potential of three seats turning over and that's a lot, so of course I'm interested in knowing who my colleagues are from that perspective," Mayor Pro Tem Len Stone told Patch.
Spano filed for the two-year term off Jim Vreeland, who resigned for health reasons earlier this year. The council unanimously appointed Ginny Jaquith to Vreeland's seat on an interim basis until the November election.
Jaquith is not among the six candidates who've pulled papers from the city clerk's office, a precursor to filing, which requires a deposit on the estimated $300 filing fee and the valid signatures of 20 city residents.
The other potential candidates who've requested paperwork from the clerk's office are former School district board member Karen Ervin, planning commission chairman Richard Campbell, school district board member Mike O'Neill, rotary club president Susan Vellone and former San Bruno Mayor Gary Mondfrans.
