Filings have closed and two Ramsey residents will run for an open seat on the Ramsey City Council.
Jill Johns and Tom Heifort will vie for election in Ward 1 at a special election July 30.
The seat became available after the resignation of Councilmember David Elvig in April, five days after a jury found him guilty of theft by swindle from the employees of his personal business, E-Street Makers.
Ward 1 is located west of Nowthen Boulevard, north of Alpine Drive to Ramsey’s border with Nowthen and east to the Rum River.
The term will expire Dec. 31, 2014, putting Ward 1 back on the ballot in the 2014 general election.
