With the filing window open, three Missoulians, including a city council representative, the current mayor and a longtime housing non-profit leader, have all filed for election as the city's next mayor.
For the first time in 16 years, Missoulians will have to get to know some newer faces in the political landscape.
Jordon Hess was a former transportation specialist at UM and a councilman when he was appointed to replace the late John Engen last year.
Mike Nugent, a realtor, council member and lifetime resident of the city threw his hat in early on.
And recently, Andrea Davis, head of Home Word, said she would enter the race.
At least two other candidates, including the former Sheriff of Missoula County, have also expressed interest.
