Seat-seeking candidates file as Friday deadline nears

From Staff Reports

Friday is the deadline for persons interested in seeking a seat on one of the various city councils or public school districts with a May 11 election to file.

Because of a charter amendment the Weatherford City Council is not conducting an election this year. Here is a rundown of the filing activity and seats open this May for other boards and councils around the area:

Weatherford ISD

The incumbents for the three board member seats whose terms are up in May – Place 3 Trustee Charlie Martinez, Place 4 Trustee Gail Wirtanen and Place 5 Trustee Charlie Martinez – have all filed for re-election and so far have not drawn  opponents.

The filing deadline for WISD’s election is 5 p.m. Friday. Applications can be picked up at the District Services Building, 1100 Longhorn Drive.

Aledo ISD

Two seats are up for election this May on the AISD, and both incumbents – Place 4 Trustee Steve Bartley and Place 5 Trustee Bobby Rigues – have filed to retain their seats and at present are not opposed.

The filing deadline is 4 p.m. Friday, and applications can be picked up at the Aledo ISD business office, 1008 Bailey Ranch Road. Applications can be mailed to the office, c/o Anne Grace, at 1008 Bailey Ranch Road, Aledo TX 76008.

Millsap ISD

Two seats with expiring terms in May have so far drawn three candidates – incumbents Tommy Lucia and Jerry Walker – as well as challenger Timothy Kukuk. With a contested election, the top two vote winners will win the seats.
