11 candidates are gearing up to duke it out to win the election to be the Council person in District 12, to succeed retiring Councilman Greig Smith, according to Chatsworth Patch. Saturday was the filing deadline for the 2011 Primary Election, which will take place on March 8. Next year, the seven "even-numbered City Council district seats are up for election." Among those on the primary are two businesswomen, three Neighborhood Council members, a policeman, and a restaurant owner, as well as other hopefuls. CD 12 covers the northwestern portion of the City.
