It looks like it may be a crowded race for Antioch Mayor as Donald P. Freitas, Mayor Pro Term Wade Harper, and Councilman Gary Agopian have all pulled papers.

For both Harper and Agopian, they are running from safe seats as their terms do not expire until 2014. If neither win the mayor’s race, they can still serve their remaining two years of their council term. It is unclear at this time if current Mayor James Davis will run for re-election as Mayor or run for council.
With two seats up for City Council, Walter Ruehlig and Victor Noel have pulled papers while its expected Monica Wilson who was in the Antioch City Parade will also pull papers shortly. Both Brian Kalinowski and Mary Helen Rocha terms are up in November.
For City Treasurer Donna Conley has pulled papers.
The official candidate filing period for the Nov. 6 general election opens Monday, July 16, and runs through Aug. 10.
