Former Grovetown mayor Dennis Trudeau signed up Wednesday to run in the special election for a vacant City Council seat.
Trudeau, 87, qualified for the March 19 special election to fill the seat of former City Councilwoman Jennifer Jones, who resigned on Jan. 17. Jones’ term ends at the end of 2015.
Trudeau served as the city’s mayor for 20 years before stepping down in 2007. He also was appointed to the council in Jan. 2011 to fill the unexpired term of a resigning councilman.
Qualifying for the special election continues from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and from 9 a.m. to noon on Friday at City Hall. The qualifying fee is $108.
Candidates must be at least 25, registered voters and have lived inside the city for at least a year.
City Council seats held by incumbents Sonny McDowell and Bruce Stoddard will be on the Nov. 5 ballot. Qualifying for those elections will be Aug. 26-30.
