Cory Mitchell is making his second straight run for Bridge City Independent School District board, filing for the Place 7 seat held for the past 15 years by Mark Anderson.
The election, as well as those for all area city councils and school boards – except for Orangefield – will be held May 2.
Filing for places on the ballot continue through Feb. 14. Orangefield holds school board elections in November.
Mitchell was the first non-incumbent to register to run for the election. A process operator, Mitchell took on longtime board member Jerry McInnis for the Place 5 seat a year ago and garnered 41 percent of the vote.
Besides Place 7, the BCISD board election will also see the Place 6 seat, currently held by Michael C. Johnson, on the ballot for 2020.
In Orange, District 3 councilwoman Terrie Salter filed for re-election in the last week, joining Place 6 at-large councilman Paul Burch on the ballot.
