Harker Heights Mayor Mike Aycock, who is serving his first three-year term in office, filed Wednesday to seek re-election to the city’s top post.

Filing for the May municipal election in Harker Heights began Wednesday. Two people already are vying for the two available seats on the Harker Heights City Council.

“I think there is still a lot of work to be done in the city,” Aycock said Tuesday.

Aycock said he has seen many projects get underway and would like to see more come to fruition.

John Reider, former councilman and owner of John Reider Properties, filed to run for Place 4.

Reider left the council in 2013 after serving two three-year terms. He will not face an incumbent in May because Place 4 Councilman Rob Robinson is term-limited.

Robinson served about seven years, including a one-year term he won in a special election.

Harker Heights candidates are elected to three-year terms. Residents can pick up information about the municipal election at City Hall, 305 Miller’s Crossing.

The deadline for filing to run in the election is 5 p.m. Feb. 28.
