The candidate filing period for the upcoming Georgetown City Council election closed Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. with four applications received, according to a city press release.

Two candidates filed to run for mayor, including Mayor Josh Schroeder. He will face challenger Jonathan Dade in the May 6 election.

Meanwhile, Shawn Hood and Jake French, the incumbents for districts 2 and 6, respectively, filed for re-election and are running unopposed.

Because these two seats are unopposed, the election for them will be canceled, according to the release.

Members of the Georgetown City Council hold a three-year term and are elected to represent one of seven single-member districts. The mayor—who is elected by all Georgetown residents—also serves a three-year term.

The last day to register to vote for the May 6 election is April 6. Early in-person voting will run April 24-May 2.

As the election approaches, additional information on polling places, times and dates will be available at
