Two Candidates File For Lubbock City Office

Several have announced, but only two candidates filed the official papers to run for Lubbock office Monday.  It was the first day for those seeking a spot on the May ballot to file their candidacy with city hall.

Several other people previously announced their intention to seek a city office, and right now we know of seven more potential candidates for the five positions up for grabs.

Karin Martin, wife of former city councilman and mayor pro-tem Tom Martin delivered his paperwork to city hall Monday. Martin was in Washington D.C. discussing the Ports to Plains Corridor.

Come May, he'll run against current Mayor David Miller. Miller told NewsChannel 11 Monday evening that he still intends to run for mayor, and plans to make a formal announcement in the near future.

Councilwoman Phyllis Jones also told us Monday that she is still undecided, but will make an announcement soon.

Jones could face talk radio host Paul Beane for the District 4 spot.  Beane told NewsChannel 11 he was considering running for the seat last week.

The District 2 seat has three potential candidates.

In early January, councilman Floyd Price announced he would run for re-election.

Later, Gilbert Salinas announced he would also run for the seat.

Then, Armando Gonzales told NewsChannel 11 he also intended to run for city council in District 2.

District 6 is also on the ballot.  Councilman Jim Gilbreath has not made an announcement whether he would run for re-election, and we could not get in contact with Gilbreath Monday night.

Right now, no one has filed to run for the District 6 seat.

Robert Doty filed for Municipal Judge. That is the position he already holds, and Judge Doty is the only person to file for Municipal Judge.

Folks have from now until March 10th to file their candidacy with the city.

Early voting runs from April 28th to May 6th.  Election Day is May 10th.
