LOMA LINDA – The deadline to run for City Council in the June 5 election passed Friday without Councilman Stan Brauer filing for reelection.

His failure to file extends the filing period to 5 p.m. Wednesday.

Three candidates have filed for the three council seats up for election.

The City Council is allowed under California election law to nominate additional candidates after the new Wednesday deadline if there are too few candidates for an election, according to City Clerk Pamela Byrnes-O’Camb.

Councilman Ovi Popescu and Mayor Rhodes Rigsby, both of whom are running for reelection, are endorsing each other and John Lenart, a physician at Loma Linda University Medical Center who is a member of the Planning Commission.
