Vicki Reynolds, former Beverly Hills Unified School District board president, has become the first announced candidate for next year's City Council election.
Mayor Benjamin H. Stansbury and Councilwomen Donna Ellman and Charlotte Spadaro are up for reelection but none have said whether they will run.
City Treasurer Ramon I. Gerson, who has been in office 16 years, said he will not seek reelection in the April 12 municipal election.
Candidate filing opens Jan. 14 and closes Feb. 9. If any one incumbent decides not to seek reelection, the filing period will be extended for five days, according to City Clerk Jean M. Ushijima.
