PARADISE, Calif. - There are three incumbents and ten other people running for the three open seats on Paradise Town Council, Action News Now spoke to a couple people about why they think so many people are running.

"I think that's a sign that a lot of people aren't happy with the five that we have had, and that's why so many people run to say I am going to be different," said Ward Habriel. 

Habriel says it's happened before, but not with this many people.

The seats that are up for re-election this year are Greg Bolin, Melissa Schuster, and Mike Zuccolillo. 

Habriel says he thinks people were frustrated with the Town Council even before the Camp Fire.

"Even to the Measure C thing, there was an overwhleming amount of people who didn't like the tax, there were a couple people on the Council who said I am against it I am against it, and then when it came time to vote they were for it, that's not a good thing," said Habriel. 

Habriel says when controversial events like that occur, it seems like people want change. 

He's not the only one who thinks a change might be in the works. 

"I know it's got to be a hard job to be in that position, perhaps the Town Council might have a different agenda than most people who live in Paradise, so I think there might be some conflict in that regard," said Carole Wright. 

Wright says overall there's just a lot going on, which makes it harder.
