No Missoula council incumbents in first days of filing 

Councilman Adam Hertz says he won't run for a second term(MONDAY)- There are still several weeks to go. But so far it's only political newcomers who are filing to run for Missoula City Council this fall. 

Six different council positions are up for re-election this year.

The list of incumbents includes council veterans Jason Weiner and Ed Childers, and first-term council members Adam Hertz, Alex Taft, and Mike O'Herron. The 6th seat was vacated when Caitlen Copple stepped down earlier this year. 

However, none of the incumbents had filed to run again through the first couple of weeks of filing. 

John Debari was the first to file for the Ward 4 position vacated by Copple. Appointee Patrick Weasel Head hadn't filed to run by mid-week. 

Heidi West has filed for the Ward 1 council seat currently held by Weiner. 

Anita Green has applied for the Ward 2 council race. Adam Hertz is saying he doesn't plan to seek a second term. 

Gwen Jones has filed for the Ward 3 race. That's the position held by Alex Taft.

No one had filed for the Ward 5 race, for the seat held by Ed Childers. 

Filing closes on July 2nd.
