Gonzales, Marshall officially kick off campaigns for Pflugerville mayor

Pflugerville will have at least two mayoral candidates for November's election.

Pflugerville will have at least two mayoral candidates for November's election.

Mayor Victor Gonzales announced he will run for a second term as Pflugerville mayor this November. Gonzales will face a challenge from at least one other candidate. Brad Marshall, a former city councilman just as Gonzales was, kicked off his bid for election on Wednesday night.

Gonzales, who had a kick-off party Thursday night, grew up in Pflugerville and served three terms on city council. Gonzales said many projects have started during his time as mayor and he would like to see them through.

“There are many more on the horizon and some things take time,” Gonzales said. “There really wasn’t a decision to make. I want to continue to serve. It has been a great experience.”

Marshall has lived in Pflugerville for 19 years. He served on the city council for five years. After 20 years in the high tech industry, Marshall now builds custom homes.

“The kickoff was fantastic [Wednesday night]," Marshall said. "I have experience in managing and growth. Pflugerville is at that point, where the growth pressures are weighing on the city. With the latest legislation decisions, I feel the city is ready for more experienced leadership. We have to figure out how to manage a rapidly growing city with those constraints."

The last day to file to run for election is Aug. 19. The Mayoral race and that of Council Place 1 held by Doug Weiss are up for the Nov. 5 election.
