Filing deadline nears for Orange council
May 8 is the deadline for candidates to apply to fill the District 2 seat on Orange City Council.
A special election has been called for June 17, for District 2 residents only, after the recent resignation of Wayne Guidry.
An administrator at West Orange-Cove CISD, Guidry was recently named superintendent in Hubbard, Texas.
Candidates must be qualified under city rules and live inside District 2, which is primarily the Little Cypress area north of Interstate 10. Registration is at the office of the city secretary.
Only residents of District 2 may vote in the election.
Early voting will take place on weekdays at Orange Public Library, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. June 5 to June 13, with hours extended from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays June 6 and June 13.
Election day voting will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Little Cypress Intermediate School, 2300 Allie Payne Road.
