Fourth Candidate to Appear on District 2 City Council Ballot

A fourth candidate in the District 2 City Council race will appear on the May 10 ballot, however, if elected he may not be eligible to serve his term.

Late Monday Freddy Green filed to run for the District 2 seat. Green is not a registered voter in the City of Lubbock, making him ineligible to serve as a City Council member. However, City Secretary Becky Garza announced Tuesday that by state law Green is eligible as a candidate.

"Mr. Green is eligible to be a candidate even though he is not presently a registered voter," said Garza. "But if elected he will not be eligible to serve on the City Council unless he is a registered voter in Lubbock on the first day of his term."

Newly elected Council members take office May 15, giving Green until April 15 to register to vote in District 2.

Green joins a field of candidates which includes incumbent Councilman Floyd Price, Armando Gonzales and Gilbert Salinas.
