   Three seats for the Chico City Council held by conservatives will be decided by voters in the November 6th general election.
   The positions are currently held by Andrew Coolidge, Mark Sorensen and Vice Mayor Reanette Filmer. None have officially announced whether they are seeking re-election.
   The City Clerk's office says five people have filed papers that they intend to run, but the official nomination period for candidates to pull papers has not been set yet. It typically runs from mid July through mid August.
   Of those who have filed intent to run, Scott Huber is the only one to publicly declare his candidacy.
   Huber is currently the President and Conservation Director for the Altacal Audubon Society. He has also worked in real estate and served on the Chico School Board from 2002 to 2006.
   In a news release this week, Huber says he finds the attitudes and actions of the current council majority toward the general public during council meetings to be "disrespectful".
   And he believes Chico's biggest challenges to be "balancing public safety and the vitality of our downtown, with finding short and long term solutions to homelessness."  Huber also wants to find a "workable stragety that will allow us to collect hundreds-of-thousands of dollars in lost tax revenues from currently under-the-table cannabis sales". 
    Huber is endorsed by Butte County Supervisor Maureen Kirk.
    Others who have indicated an intention to run include Heather Minton, Matt Gallaway, Jeremy Markley and Richard Ober.

Today was hot and tomorrow will be as well. But slightly below average temperatures move in as we see a dip in the jet stream.
