If you’d like to serve on the Highland Park Town Council, the University Park City Council, or the Highland Park ISD Board of Trustees, you need to get your paperwork in order.
Those looking for a spot on the May 5 ballot have until Feb. 16 to file paperwork. Filing began today.
In Highland Park, all six seats on the Town Council are up for grabs, including the mayor's seat. The same goes for University Park, where the City Council has five members, including the mayor. But in Highland Park ISD, only two of the seven seats – the ones held by Lee Michaels (Place 1) and Jim Hitzelberger (Place 2).
Hitzelberger and Michael have both announced they will seek reelection.
The deadline to file as a write-in candidate is February 20.
