The slate of candidates is now set for the general election for Leavenworth City Commission.

The slate of candidates is now set for the general election for Leavenworth City Commission.

Following Tuesday's primary, six candidates will be advancing to the general election. They are Jermaine Wilson, who received 717 votes, Myron J. "Mike" Griswold, 551 votes, Mark Preisinger, 541 votes, Lisa Weakley, 529 votes, Charles Raney, 468 votes, and Michael Bogner, 274 votes.

Three seats are up for election this year on the City Commission.

"I'm excited about the results of the primary election," Wilson said.

Wilson, who is a newcomer to city politics, said his hard work of going door-to-door paid off.

Griswold, who also is new to city politics, spent time going door-to-door in Leavenworth neighborhoods as well.

Griswold said he has learned a lot about the city as he has met with people.

"That's been great," he said.

Preisinger, Weakley and Raney currently serve on the commission and are seeking re-election.

Eleven people filed as candidates this year for the City Commission. The five candidates who will not be advancing to the general election are Michael J. Urban, who received 224 votes, Phil Martin, 210 votes, Daniel Schiffbauer, 207 votes, Todd O. Coulson, 188 votes, and Michael Jordan, 171 votes.

The results from the election will be unofficial until the Leavenworth County Commission canvasses the votes on Monday.

County Clerk Janet Klasinski said there are not many provisional ballots from Tuesday's primary. And she does not believe votes from these ballots will change who advances to the general election.

There also was a primary Tuesday for candidates for Tonganoxie City Council. Six candidates in this race also will be advancing to the general election. They are Jamie Lawson, Loralee D. Stevens, Chris R. Donnelly, A.W. "Rocky" Himpel, Andrew T. Gilner and Ryan Keltner.

The general election will be Nov. 7.
