Thursday morning John Sellers and Brad Burgin filed for places on the Sulphur Springs City Council. Sellers is the incumbent for Place 7 on the council. Burgin has filed for Place 6. Currently on the council in Place 6 is Kayla Price-Mitchell, who will not seek re-election.
Mrs. Price-Mitchell told KSST News that she has enjoyed serving on the council and that it was a difficult decision to not seek re-election. However, she desires to pursue other interests and available time to invest in her pursuits is limited. She has served as mayor of the city during her time on the council. She was appointed to fill a term for one year and then was re-elected to a full term which ends this year.
Burgin has been on the Planning and Zoning Board and then served on the council. Burgin, along with P & Z member and later mayor Chris Brown, led in zoning changes that remain in place along I-30.
Sellers has been a member of the council for two terms.
Filing ends February 18th for the May 6th city council election.
