What is 10-ONE?
Under the November 6, 2012, voter-approved charter amendment, Council Members are no longer elected citywide. During the 2014 election, the Mayor was elected citywide, and the other 10 Council Members were elected by residents from geographic districts.
When the first 10-ONE Council took office in January 2015, the Mayor received a four-year term according to the ordinance setting up the new governance structure. The City Clerk’s Office conducted a drawing with the other Council Members to determine whether those elected officials would serve initial terms of two or four years. Class One shall consist of five Council Members who will serve a two-year term. Class Two shall consist of five Council Members who will serve a four-year term. Thereafter, unless elected to fill a vacancy, each Council Member will serve four-year terms. This will allow future elections to take place every two years.
November 6, 2018, will be the third 10-One election. The Mayor and five Council Members will be up for election.
