The Town of Hillsborough is a general law city and was incorporated on May 10, 1910. Hillsborough’s elections are held in November of even-numbered years. The Mayor and Vice-Mayor are elected by the City Council for a maximum of two one-year terms.
Candidates Appointed to Hillsborough City Council
The City Council appointed three candidates, Jess E. Benton, Shawn Christianson and Alvin L. Royse, to the Hillsborough City Council at a Special City Council meeting held on Thursday, August 23, 2012. Appointing the three candidates to fill the three City Council seats allows the Town to cancel the November 6, 2012 Councilmember election and saves the Town approximately $15,000 in election costs. Jess E. Benton, Shawn Christianson and Alvin L. Royse will take office at the December 10, 2012 City Council meeting
