The Riverside County Registrar of Voters certified John F. Smith as a qualified candidate for Menifee mayor late Friday afternoon, meaning all those who pulled papers to run for office in the Nov. 6 elections are now eligible for the ballot.

Smith, 41, is a local businessman who is running for public office for the first time. A former resident of New Jersey, Smith is a project manager for a San Diego-based company and has an office in Perris.

He lives in District 4, the southwest portion of Menifee, where Tom Fuhrman's council seat is not up for election this year. Smith said this is why he chose to run for mayor instead, although he also supports Fuhrman as a council member.

The field is now complete for the two open city council district seats and the office of mayor, which for the first time is an at-large position. The candidates are:

Mayor: Darcy Kuenzi, Scott Mann, John F. Smith

District 1: Greg August, Sue Kristjansson, Nick Martin, Carol Sullivan

District 3: Wallace Edgerton, Bill Zimmerman
