Former District 3 candidate Brandon Lamar has once again pulled papers to be appointed to the seat.

Lamar finished second to John Kennedy in the primary. Lamar finished with 41.15% of the vote.

He did not reply to Pasadena Now this past weekend.

Lamar must turn in 30 signatures to the City Clerk’s office by close of business on Thursday.

Kennedy died in July and left two vacancies on the City Council, his current term and the term he won in the June Primary.

In September the council appointed Justin Jones to the position. Jones has qualified for the position.

The City Council is set to make the appointment sometime after Dec. 12 after the next council is sworn in.

If no one receives five votes then the position will be filled by lots.

The City Council must make the appointment within 75 days of the creation of the vacancy.

The voters will get their say in 2024 at the next general municipal election.
