City Council Places 4 and 6 will be at stake in the Nov. 6 election. Interested in running? If so, please attend the free City Council 101 seminar at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 26 in City Hall Council Chambers.

This seminar is designed to help candidates better understand the requirements, duties and limitations of the office, as well as open meeting and conflict of interest laws. We’ll cover our form of government, the role of city staff, and discuss the critical issues facing our community. Our goal is to help potential candidates make informed decisions about running and to gain an accurate understanding of what’s expected if they are elected.

The filing period to run for council opens July 23 and closes at 5 p.m. on Aug. 20. Candidates must be at least 18 years old, U.S. citizens, qualified Texas voters, and College Station residents for at least one year before Election Day. Candidate information packets are available at the City Secretary’s Office at College Station City Hall.

For more details, contact the City Secretary’s Office by calling 979.764.3541 or emailing cso@cstx.gov.
