Michael Lempres, an attorney and a member of the town's Transportation Committee and its Rail Committee is the latest candidate to join the race. Incumbents Bill Widmer and Rick DeGolia are also running along with Rose Hau, an architect who is vice chair of the Civic Center Advisory Committee.
Mr. Widmer is completing his first four-year term. Mr. DeGolia was elected to a one-year term last year to fill the seat left vacant when Jerry Carlson resigned because he was moving from Atherton.
The council now has only four members. Jim Dobbie, whose term was to expire in November, resigned in March due to poor health, and his unfilled seat is one of the three that will be on the ballot this fall. Mr. Dobbie died on July 24.
The deadline for filing is Friday, Aug. 8.
