A fourth candidate has entered the race for two seats on the Sebastopol City Council.

John Eder, 59, has notified the city clerk that he intends to run for one of the council seats.

He is a sales representative and designer for Boise Mobile Equipment, an Idaho company that manufactures firefighting equipment.

Eder previously served on the Cotati City Council. He was elected in 1998 and resigned in 2000 for business reasons.

The seats held by Sebastopol Mayor Guy Wilson and Councilwoman Kathleen Shaffer are up for election in November, but only Shaffer is seeking to keep her seat.

The other candidates besides Shaffer are Robert Jacob, a city planning commissioner and executive director of a medical marijuana dispensary, and Kathy Austin, a former mayor and an architect.
