Candidates interested in running in the nonpartisan special election for Houston City Council District G had until Dec. 16 to file. The special general election is scheduled for Jan. 25.
Five candidates filed to run in the special election by the deadline: Mary Nan Huffman, Piper Madland, D. Duke Millard, Raul Reyes Jr., and Houshang Taghizadeh.
The special election was called after former incumbent Greg Travis resigned on Oct. 27 to run for the District 133 seat in the Texas House of Representatives. Travis served on the 16-member Houston City Council from 2016 to 2021.
Houston is the largest city in Texas and the fourth-largest city in the U.S. by population.
