Filing Period Starts For 2018 City Elections In Seagoville, Crandall And Combine

SEAGOVILLE – Area residents in Seagoville, Crandall and Combine who are interested in running for a city council seat in the 2018 City Elections on Saturday, May 5, can pick up applications for a place on the ballot in the office of the city secretary at their local city hall.

The last day to file an application for a place on the ballot is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, February 16.

A trio of Seagoville City Council races will be on the ballot as the terms of incumbents Rick Howard (Place 1), Harold Magill (Place 3) and Jon Epps (Place 5) are set to expire. However, less than 500 local residents voted in 2016 which featured a pair of narrow contests.

Howard defeated Seagoville Planning & Zoning chairperson Alexandria Perez, 237-224, while former Seagoville Mayor Harold Magill nipped Daltile Sr. Manager Steven Wright by just nine votes, 227-218.
