The City Clerk will conduct two identical candidate workshops for candidates and/or their representatives on February 14 and Feb. 16.

Incumbents John Kennedy and Jessica Rivas will run for reelection in districts 3 and 5.

Vice Mayor Andy Wilson, who currently represents District 7 has announced he will not seek re-election.

The nomination period for the upcoming elections will close on Friday, March 11, 2022, at 5:00 p.m.

If the incumbent councilmember does not file nomination papers, or fails to qualify as a candidate by the March 11th deadline, the period to nominate any qualified person other than the incumbent is extended to Wednesday, March 16.
