Shockley Couple Both Running for Burlington City Council
Tom Shockley now joins his wife Becky Shockley in the run for Burlington City Council.
Both have taken nominating petitions to run for the council this November, as well as Rich Lemke. They’re looking to win the seats currently held by Chris Reed, Bob Fleming, and Mayor Jim Davidson. Council members Becky Anderson and Shane McCampbell’s terms are not up for another two-plus years.
Tom and Becky Shockley of 501 North 5th Street, are the former co-owners of Tom’s Market, which closed recently.
Potential candidates can pick up their papers in the City Clerks Office. They then have from August 12th through the 19th to gather at least 20 city resident signatures and return them to City Hall.
Speaking of elections, today is the first time city residents can vote early for the August 6th Franchise Fee Referendum.
