The races are now set for the Nov. 3 election following last week’s passage of the filing deadline. Gilda Cordova, who was appointed to her District 1 City Council seat in January 2019, will run unopposed to maintain that seat, while District 4 Councilman Jim Mosby will face off against challenger Jeremy Ball. The lone other city race will involve two familiar faces, as District 2 Councilman Victor Vega, who has two years remaining on his current term, will seek to supplant Mayor Jenelle Osborne, who is running for re-election.
