Pete Palmer has filed as a candidate for Beaufort City Council in the Nov. 6 election, city clerk Ivette Burgess said Tuesday.
Palmer, who has served on the boards for Historic Beaufort Foundation and the Wardle Family YMCA, is the first non-incumbent to file for one of the three seats up for election. Mayor Billy Keyserling and Councilmen Mike McFee and George O'Kelley Jr. filed previously.
The deadline to file is noon today. Filing fees are $150 for a council race and $250 for the mayoral race.
City Council has five members -- a mayor and four council members, all elected at-large.
Filing information is available on the city's website, www.cityofbeaufort.org.
