Frank Castronova and Adrienne Fazzolara Gilmore are running for these two terms which expire January 1, 2018. Vying for the two full term seats, which expire January 1, 2020, are incumbents Judeen Bartos and Monique Herzig.

Ferndale voters will also be deciding whether or not to adopt an ordinance which would decriminalize the use, possession or transfer of less than 1 ounce of marijuana, on private property, by persons 21 years or older.

In accordance with the City’s Charter, the question now goes before the City’s qualified electors.
