Ward 1 news
We’re back to five candidates for the Ward 1 council seat.
Today, Jesus Dominguez, a retired Marine who works as a contractor for Flatter and Associates in Stafford County, said he plans to apply. Dominguez said he had already been thinking about running for the Ward 1 seat in 2010.
He joins Steve Braun, David Cunningham, Bryan Metts and Kyle Snyder in the race for this seat.
Also, the city has posted an updated timeline for the selection process here. The only change: They’ve moved the meeting where they plan to pare the candidate list down to three from Aug. 28 to Sept. 8.
