Do you want to run for the Amarillo City Council?

The first step in the election process for Amarillo City Council begins Thursday.

Citizens interested in filing for a place on the city council ballot for the May 6 election can pick up a candidate packet from the city secretary’s office in Room 303 of City Hall, 601 S. Buchanan. The packet includes a combination of information and forms combined to help guide potential candidates through the election process.

The general election is May 6. All five city council seats will be on the ballot. The city secretary will begin taking applications for a place on the ballot on Jan. 18. The application deadline to be on the ballot is Feb. 17 at 5 p.m.

A campaign treasurer appointment is the first step in this process and may be filed at any time. A campaign treasurer should be appointed before a citizen announces their intentions to run, receives campaign funds or expends campaign funds.

For additional information, contact City of Amarillo City Secretary Stephanie Coggins by email at or at (806) 378-3014.
