The slate is set for municipal elections in Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough and South Portland, with multiple candidates vying for seats on the governing councils in each community.

The biggest field is in South Portland, where there’s a seven-way race for two, three-year seats on the City Council. The candidates vying for the two at-large council seats include former councilors Michael Pock and Louis B. Maietta Jr., along with incumbent Maxine Beecher. Others running for City Council are Richard Carter, who is currently serving on the Board of Education; former school board member James Gilboy, who resigned his seat last summer after his wife took a job with the school district; Susan Henderson; and Katherine Lewis. South Portland Mayor Blake, the other at-large councilor, is not running again because of term limits.

Two candidates are running for the two available seats on the school board, Otis Thompson and Michael Faulkingham.

In Cape Elizabeth, incumbent Caitlin Jordan will face off against former Councilor Penelope “Penny” Jordan and Shannon Auritt for two seats on the Cape Town Council.

In addition, School Board incumbent Susana Measelle Hubbs and Kimberly Carr are running unopposed for the two open seats on that panel.

Two candidates nights are now scheduled in Cape for 7 p.m. on both Oct. 6 and Oct. 13 at Town Hall. Both events will also be broadcast on CETV Channel 3.

In Scarborough, four candidates have filed papers for two seats on the Town Council this fall.

Bill Donovan, the current council chairman, is seeking re-election. The other three council candidates are Marjorie DeSanctis, Kathleen (Katy) Foley and Annalee Rosenblatt, a former member of the Scarborough Board of Education, who is also active with the town Republican Committee. Jean-Marie Caterina, whose term is up on the council, is seeking to unseat Republican state Sen. Amy Volk.

There are also two seats available on the school board and only two candidates, incumbents Cari Lyford and Jodi Shea.
