Oakes Files For Election

March 24, 1991

WESTMINSTER — An area developer Friday became the sixth candidate to file to run for a City Council seat in the May 13 municipal election.

Michael W. Oakes joins two incumbents and three challengers who thus far have filed to run for three open seats on the council.

Oakes, 38, is president of Michael Oakes, a Westminster home building and development company. He and his wife, Carol, have a son, 13,and a daughter, 9. This is his first attempt to run for public office.

Oakes said Friday he doesn't believe the current council is equipped to usher the city through the inevitable transformation from a small rural community to a growing city.

Challengers Dennis Frazier, Rebecca Orenstein and former councilman Kenneth Yowan also have filed to run, as have Councilmen Mark Snyder and Samuel Greenholtz. Council President Kenneth Hornberger is up for re-election, but has yet to announce whether he will run.
