WESTMORLAND — The last day for filing to run for City Council here is Friday and several residents appear to be looking to fill one short-term and three full-term seats.
The short-term seat will last two years. It had been held by Thomas Marquez, who resigned from the council after being called to "on-call" status in the Air Force reserve following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The four-year seats held by councilmen Rumaldo Marquez, John Makin and Mayor Henry Halcon also will be up for election.
Rumaldo Marquez stated during a council meeting he would not seek re-election. Makin and Halcon have said they will pursue re-election
City Clerk Sally Traylor said three people picked up applications for the short-term position: Victor Sanchez Jr., Thomas Landrum and Halcon.
