Running for the office of Glenwood Councilmember for District Two were Boyd Berry, John D. Johnson and Mary West.

“We will not have to have an election since they did not have any opposition,” said Sandra Berry, Town Clerk of Glenwood.

To qualify for these offices, candidates must meet the criteria spelled out in the 2016 Alabama Municipal Elections Manual.

According to the manual, candidates must “certify that they are fully qualified to hold the respective offices for which they are candidates if elected thereto” and “shall be a resident and qualified elector of the city or town at the time they qualify to run for office and shall reside within the limits of the city or town during the term of office.”

Additionally, candidates must also have been residents of the area in which they intend to campaign for 90 prior to the election, as well as be a qualified elector at the time of filing their statement of candidacy.
