Today we are highlighting the candidates for Amarillo City Council Place Three. 

The incumbent is Dr. Eddy Sauer. 

He was first elected in 2017. Dr. Sauer is a lifelong resident of Amarillo. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Turn Center. He also currently provides dental treatment for patients from Heal the City.

Thomas Warren, II is another candidate hoping to win your vote for Place Three.

Warren is a lifelong Amarillo resident and an Amarillo College and WTAMU graduate. He has spent more than 25 years serving on various non-profits in the city, including the Amarillo Historical Museum Board of Directors and the Maverick Boys and Girls Club. He is married to his high school sweetheart. Warren was one of five finalists to fill Dr. Brian Eades’s seat on the council for Place Two back in 2016. He previously served on the City of Amarillo Pet Registration Subcommittee. 

Warren is for the addition of two city council members and moving to a single member district format. He said he thinks there would be many benefits to changing to that form of government.
