November’s election in Garden City could mean a big shakeup for the City Council — or it could mean the council makeup stays the same.

This year, Council President Pam Beaumont is up for re-election, as is James Page. The city has at-large elections, which means that the top two vote-getters win and join — or stay on — the council. To keep their seats, Beaumont and Page each must get more votes than the three challengers.

Running in Garden City this year:

  • Pam Beaumont
  • Wendy Carver-Herbert
  • Patrick Little
  • James Page
  • Jeff Stephenson

The election is Tuesday, Nov. 5.
