Two Murrieta City Council seats are up for grabs in the November election, and potential candidates are already beginning to emerge.
As of Wednesday, four prospective candidates had pulled papers with an intent to run for office, according to Murrieta City Clerk Kay Vinson.
They are: incumbent Randon Lane, Harry Ramos, David Mueting, and John Paul Serbin.
Incumbent Doug McAllister, who currently serves as mayor, has not yet announced whether he will seek another term.
Candidates have until Aug. 10 to gather at least 20 valid signatures from Murrieta residents, pay an $800 election fee and follow other guidelines, according to the election packet provided by Vinson.
The winning candidates in November will be appointed to serve a four-year term.
