Filings for school board and city council elections in May ended last Friday. Here are the filings for area city council seats open in May:

Aledo

On the Aledo City Council, Mayor Kit Marshall will run unopposed. There are two contested races. George “Pres” McGee, 70, has filed opposite incumbent Jean Bailey, 55, in Place 2. In Place 4 incumbent 48-year-old Kimberly Hiebert will square off against Mark Siegmund, 50.  

Annetta South

There will be no May elections in Annetta South because incumbents Philip Kuntz, Place 1; Jimmy Harvell, Place 2; and David Goolsby, Place 4, did not draw opponents.

Annetta

Incumbent George Ripley, in Place 4, was the only incumbent to file for re-election, and he is not contested.

Annetta North

In Annetta North only the incumbents have filed: Kristin Jenkins in Place 2; Rob Watson in Place 4; and Len Callaway in Place 6, meaning no May election.

Willow Park has two contested races, one in Place 3, where Greg Runnebaum will challenge incumbent Amy Podany; and Place 4, where James E. Mullins Jr. has filed opposite incumbent Dan Stallings. Tim “Griff” Griffiths seeks election to Place 5 but has no opponent because incumbent Bernard Suchocki did not re-file.

In Reno, incumbent Billie Steele is unopposed in Place 5, but incumbent Ken Parnell in Place 1 faces challenger Carol Houlihan and incumbent Bonnie Black in Place 3 is opposed by both Gilbert Morrow and G.G. (Randy) Martin III.
