While there’s no name on the ballot, voters in the northeast part of Iola will have options when they head to the polls a week from today.

Carl Slaugh, retired Iola city administrator, notified the Register this morning that he is running as a write-in candidate for the Iola City Council.

“We have a great community,” Slaugh wrote, “and I would be happy to work towards preserving our infrastructure and making improvements as we have the financial means and public will.”
