Six file for city council, one for each school board seat files

Hats were being tossed into the ring late last week just prior to the deadline to register for the Mount Vernon City Council election.

Only one candidate filed for each of the three seats available on the Mount Vernon ISD School Board. For a listing of those who have registered and information on how to sign up to vote, see the February 20 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
