Nordine files for Electric City council seat


Carol Nordine filed her intent to run for a seat on the Electric City Council during a special three-day filing period last week.

Nordine filed for Position 4 on the council currently held by Jeremy Miller, who did not file because, he told council members, he might move. Miller has held the position for only a few weeks and was selected by the council to fill the vacancy when Brad Parrish resigned after his wife took the position as deputy clerk.

The filing period was June 19-21. Nordine was the lone person filing for the seat.

If Miller stays until his current position ends, then Nordine would become a member of the council in January.

Nordine said over the weekend that she was prompted to file for the council seat because she wanted to see the parks and trail development through.

“I want to be involved in the city’s revitalization project,” Nordine said. “People have heard it talked about for a long time and are impatient. It is about to start, and when it does it will go fast.”

She earlier served on the council for about a year when she filled out a position that had been vacated.

Nordine was narrowly defeated by Birdie Hensley, who currently is on the council.

Nordine’s son, John Nordine II, is currently the mayor of Electric City.

She was seated on the council in June 2015 after Mayor Nordine broke a tie vote to appoint her to an empty seat.
