District 2 Candidate Update

Despite the fact that the city hasn't indicated when there will be an election to replace City Rep Larry Romero, another candidate has joined the race with Jim Tolbert.

Obviously this is unofficial because the filing window hasn't opened yet.

David Nevarez, best known for his appearance in an ad for Beto O'Rourke when he ran for congress against Silvestre Reyes a few terms ago, has indicated that he is going to run.

Nevarez is also on the city's veterans affairs committee. 

The fact that there are two candidates in a race that isn't even happening yet is a pretty good indicator that it will likely be a full field.

The other candidate everyone keeps talking about is Michael Apodaca. He appears close to making a decision and word on the street is that he is strongly considering his candidacy.

There's no rush for Apidaxa to make up his mind and since. Either of the two candidates that are already running for the seat have ever won and election, Apodaca probably like his chances. Especially since he's running campaigns in this election cycle.

Expect more and more candidates to throw their hat in the ring.
