Andrew Young

Dr. Andrew Young

Dr. Andrew Young will seek a third term on the Victoria City Council.

Young filed for a spot on the ballot Jan. 18, shortly after the filing period for the May elections opened, according to the Victoria city secretary’s office. He has not received any campaign contributions between July 16 and Jan. 15, according to his latest campaign finance report.

Young, 45, was first elected to represent Super District 5 after winning a runoff election in 2013. The podiatrist ran unopposed in the 2016 election. Young’s district covers the southern half of Victoria.

Terms for Mayor Paul Polasek, Councilman Tom Halepaska, and Young are ending this year. Polasek and Halepaska have decided not to seek re-election.

Candidates planning to run for office in the May 4 election have until Feb. 15 to submit the paperwork required to secure a spot on the ballot. So far, Brent Carter and Vic Morgan have filed to run for mayor. Only one candidate, Mark Loffgren, has filed to run to succeed Halepaska and represent Super District 6.
