The City of Portland will hold a special election on June 8 on Peaks Island to fill a vacancy on the Peaks Island Council. The deadline for submitting nomination papers is March 29. No one has submitted nomination papers yet.

Ruth Heller, who had won the election to the seat last November, moved off the island. Prior to the election, Heller had notified the city that she was moving, but the ballots had already been printed. Heller never took the oath of office.

The City Council then changed the city’s election ordinance so the Peaks Island Council could appoint someone in the interim. The Peaks Island Council appointed Judy Piawlock to fill the seat until June. 8.

The term would be for two and a half years.
