Several candidates have said they plan to run for mayor. Only one has filed so far for a place on the ballot: Scott Griggs.
Griggs, the city council member representing North Oak Cliff, filed on Monday, according to the elections page of the city’s website.
The filing period for the May 4 election opened Jan. 16 and runs through Feb. 15.
The slow start to the filing period shouldn’t be seen as a lack of interest in the office. In addition to Griggs, the field of mayoral candidates will reportedly include Mike Ablon, Albert Black Jr., state Rep. Eric Johnson, Alyson Kennedy, Regina Montoya, Lynn McBee, Miguel Solis, and Jason Villalba.
