It appears that we now have at least three Republican candidates for this year's City Council election.

The three GOP hopefuls filed on Friday, April 10.

Bill Hunt, a pilot who takes trips with the Tucson chapter of the Flying Samaritans, wants to challenge Democrat Regina Romero, who is seeking a third term in westside Ward 1.

Kelly Lawton, who works for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, wants to take on Democrat Paul Cunningham, who is seeking his second full term in northeastern Ward 2.

And Margaret Burkholder, who serves on the Vail School District governing board, wants to unseat Democrat Shirley Scott, who is seeking her fifth term in southeastern Ward 4.

There's still no sign of a mayoral candidate. The Range had heard that a fellow named Zach Catsaros was putting together a campaign but his plans have hit some kind of snag. Catsaros has not replied to a Facebook message sent last week.
