The city of Fresno, California, is holding a nonpartisan special election for the District 2 seat on the city council on August 13. A runoff election is scheduled for November 5. The filing deadline for this election is May 17.
The District 2 city council seat was previously held by Steve Brandau. He was first elected to the seat in 2012. Brandau stepped down in April 2019 after winning the District 2 seat on the Fresno County Board of Supervisors in a special election on March 5.
The District 2 city council seat was last up for election in 2016. Brandau won re-election without opposition that year. Winners of the 2019 special election will serve the remainder of Brandau’s term, which ends in 2020. Though the seat is nonpartisan, Brandau is affiliated with the Republican Party.
