Yesterday was the deadline to file with the city to be a candidate for the League City City Council, and 10 residents are interested in serving.
Incumbent Pat Hallisey is running for re-election as mayor. He will face Sebastian Lofaro who is also running for mayor.
Position 1 Council Member Dan Becker and Position 6 Council Member Keith Gross are not running for re-election. Becker has served the maximum number of two four-year terms. League City residents can serve only two terms on the council and only two terms as mayor, said Sarah Greer Osborne, director of communications and media relations.
Andy Mann and Traci Jacobs are both campaigning for Becker’s seat. Chad Tressler, Silvio P. Vincenzo and Chris Gross are running for the Position 6 seat. Chris Gross is Keith Gross' older brother, Osborne said.
Incumbent Hank Dugie is the only candidate running for his Position 2 seat. Position 7 Council Member Nick Long is running for re-election; Ange Mertens is also running for the seat.
