ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Just in the nick of time, two more candidates added their names to the May election ballots. Friday was the last day to apply to run for Abilene City Council and Mayor.

Chad A. Clark applied to run for mayor Thursday, and will be listed on election ballots as a write in candidate. Clark listed himself as a retiree.

For place three on city council, Cynthia Alvidrez is running, but because of the late application her status does not yet indicate whether or not she qualifies. Alvidrez listed herself as an entrepreneur. She previously ran for mayor in 2020.
