Tuesday (10/5) is primary election day in Ottumwa. This election will narrow the list of candidates for mayor and city council. Rick Bick, Rick Johnson and Robert LaPoint are running for mayor—with one candidate to be eliminated. And nine people are running for three city council seats: Cara Galloway, LeRoy Hanna Junior, Russ Hull, Douglas David McAntire, Mitch Niner, Ashley Noreuil, Sandra Pope, Matthew Pringle and Brad Stines. Six city council candidates will advance to the November general election.
