Three people will vie to replace outgoing Fresno Unified trustee Larry Moore, and four others will battle to take the seat of State Center Community College District trustee William J. Smith.
In Hanford, six people will vie for two open City Council seats.
Both Moore and Smith were incumbents who decided not to seek re-election to their respective seats. Because of that, the deadline for hopefuls to file for the seats in the Nov. 6 election was extended five days, from last Friday to Wednesday at 5 p.m.
But nobody else joined the races. The three in Fresno Unified's District 2 and the four in State Center's District 2 were unchanged from Friday.
In Fresno Unified, educator and NAACP leader Daren Miller, a high school counselor in Madera; Luis Chavez, chief of staff for City Council Member Sal Quintero; and Esmeralda Diaz, a parent who in the past has unsuccessfully run for the Fresno school board, will seek Moore's seat.
The four seeking to replace Smith are educator Eric Payne; businesswoman Paulina Miranda; retired real estate appraiser Phil Maher, who has run for the seat before; and case manager Brian Murillo.
In Kings County, no new candidates surfaced during the extended filing period for two Hanford City Council seats being vacated by incumbents. Mayor Sue Sorensen and Council Member Dan Chin did not seek re-election.
Seeking election to Area B in north-central Hanford are Russ Curry, retired law enforcement officer, and Robin Mattos, legal researcher and homemaker.
Seeking election to Area C in northeast Hanford are Gary L. Pannett, educator and vocational instructor; Mike Spicer, security management consultant; Doug Soper, firefighter; and Meik Head, retired probation officer.
