Friday afternoon, Dan Froneberger filed for Place 6 on the Sulphur Springs City Council. Froneberger joins Brad Burgin and Charles Oxford as candidates for the seat.
For Place 7, incumbent John Sellers and Andy Lowen have filed.
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.
Filing ends at the end of the business day Friday, February 17, 2017. May 6th is election day.
