Slow response to candidate filing period in city of Seguin

 
(Seguin) -- The deadline to file for Seguin City Council is just around the corner -- yet only a handful of people have filed for a place on the ballot. In fact, one race has no candidates at all. 

Seats up for election in November include those currently held by District 3 Councilman Nick Carrillo, District 5 Councilman Carlos Medrano, District 7 Councilwoman Donna Dodgen, and District 8 Councilman Bob Pees. Pees completes his second term in November and therefore is not eligible for reelection due to term limits. Who will replace Pees remains a mystery, because no one has officially filed for the position. 

In District 3, Phil Seidenberger, the current chairman of the Seguin Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors, has filed for a spot on the ballot.  Seidenberger made his announcment this week after Councilman Carrillo announced that he was not seeking reelection.  Carrillo has since endorsed Seidenberger's candidacy. 

Councilman Medrano and Councilwoman Dodgen have both filed for their seats, and may run unopposed unless someone files over the next couple of days. 

People interested in being on the ballot may pick up an application packet at the front desk of Seguin City Hall. Those filing must live in the district that they wish to serve. The filing deadline is 5 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 18. The election is set for Tuesday, Nov. 4.
