Whitehall voters will see a sparse ballot Tuesday, Nov. 5, with just one local contested race and one countywide issue.

Races for Whitehall mayor, City Council president, city attorney, treasurer and school board are uncontested.

Four candidates are vying for three at-large seats on Whitehall City Council.

They are incumbents Robert Bailey, Karen Conison and Wes Kantor and challenger Gerald Dixon.

Whitehall's council race is nonpartisan.

Bailey did not respond to a questionnaire sent by ThisWeek Whitehall News about his candidacy.

Conison, 57, is a human-resources manager at SourcePoint, a nonprofit agency in Delaware.

She has a bachelor's degree in public relations from Ohio State University.

She and her husband, Mark, reside in Whitehall and have a son and a daughter.

Dixon, 58, is a Whitehall-Yearling High School graduate who's employed in the restaurant industry.

He is a member of the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio artists.

Dixon campaigned for an at-large seat in 2015 and a ward seat in 2017.

Kantor, 63, is a Whitehall-Yearling graduate and lifelong resident, apart from his military service.

Whitehall voters also will consider a countywide levy: a 3.1-mill, 10-year renewal levy for Franklin County Children Services that has been designated as Issue 10 by the Franklin County Board of Elections.

The 3.1-mill renewal levy is expected to generate more than $85.6 million annually, according to The Columbus Dispatch. The levy will cost homeowners about $84.50 annually per $100,000 in property valuation, and it is collecting at an effective rate of 2.76 mills, according to the Franklin County Auditor's Office.

Early voting is underway and began Oct. 8.
