Today, City Council Place One Candidate Jay Kirkman made his official announcement at the central library.
Kirkman spoke about how his family has left their mark on Amarillo and how he plans to continue to carry their legacy.
“I am not looking for political opportunity or to use this position as a stepping stone for higher office. The Kirkman family are stakeholders and we love our city, and we will always assure that we put Amarillo first,” said Kirkman.
Election Day for the municipal elections is May 4.
Kirkman will be facing off against incumbent Elaine Hays, Hayden Pedigo, and Richard Herman.
