Four people qualified to seek a Harlem City Council position in the November nonpartisan election. Seats occupied by Councilmen John Thigpen and Rudolph Dixon are up for re-election on the Nov. 5 ballot.
Thigpen, 53, a chemical senior engineer at DSM Chemical in Augusta, has served on the council since 2003 and qualified to see his fourth term on the council. Dixon, 88, a retired Methodist minister, qualified to run for his seventh since his service began after his 1994 retirement.
Newcomers Dan Bellavance and Lee Ann Meyer qualified to challenge the incumbents.
