Four fresh faces and one council veteran will vie for two Cottage Grove City Council seats when voters head to the polls to decide what looks like a wide open race.
Council member Pat Rice is seeking his fourth term on the council, and is facing four opponents, only one of whom has previously sought public office — Derrick Lehrke, who narrowly lost out on a council seat in 2008.
Public Safety Commission chair Angela Chambliss — who was endorsed last month by a Cottage Grove police officers association — former Planning Commission chair David Thiede and Human Rights/Human Services Commission member Tanweer Janjua are also seeking a council seat.
