Filings begin for Quincy City Council seats

City of Quincy

QUINCY — Five people filed petitions to run for alderman on the first day of filing at Quincy City Hall.

One contested race is already shaping up as incumbent Patty Maples (D-6th Ward) is getting a challenge from Republican Jake Reed.

Maples is running for her first full term after being appointed in May following the resignation of Katie Awerkamp, who moved out of the ward.

Three other incumbents also filed on Monday: Jeff Bergman (R-2nd Ward), Kelly Mays, (R-3rd Ward) and Ben Uzelac (D-7th Ward).

Mays, like Maples is running in her first election following her appointment to the City Council in June 2021. Alderman Jason Finney resigned the seat after moving out of the ward.

Bergman is running for his third term. He was first elected in 2015, defeating Democrat Steve Duesterhaus and continuing the trend of putting the City Council in Republican control.

Uzelac also defeated an incumbent, Republican Terri Heinecke, in 2019, to earn his first term.

The final day to file petitions to run for alderman is Nov. 28. The consolidated primary election is Feb. 28, 2023 and the consolidated general election is April 4, 2023.
