The March 9 deadline to file for a spot on the Glen Rose City Council has come and gone. Three spots, including the mayoral seat is up for re-election on May 9.
Mayor Pam Miller, who is serving her third term, filed to run unopposed for her fourth term. Miller also sat on the city council before she ran for the mayorís seat in 2004.
Councilman Bob Stricklin had his papers in last week to defend his spot on the council. The May election will be Stricklinís second recent bid for the council. He previously served in the 1990s before returning last election cycle.
Councilman Chris Bryant is also running for his second term. Bryant was elected to his first council seat during the last election cycle.
The two incumbents do have a challenger, however. Newcomer Carol Oldenburg submitted her application to run for a spot on the council on Monday.
Oldenburg moved to Glen Rose about a year and a half ago. She previously served as the clerk for a township in Minnesota for 13 years.
Last week, GRISD school board members Tom Lounsberry and Kevin Taylor filed to keep their positions on the board. Dr. Michael Davis also filed last week and remains the only challenger.
