There are contested races for three of the four seats up for election on the Macomb City Council.

Second Ward Alderwoman Kay Hill will be challenged by Steven Wailand. Hill was appointed to the seat two years ago. Wailand is a student at Western Illinois University.

The race in the new fifth ward pits two incumbent city council members against one another. Clay Hinderliter represents the current seventh ward while Tim Lobdell is the sixth ward alderman. A third candidate – David Dunn – has also filed in the fifth ward.
