NOLANVILLE — Councilman Dennis Biggs tossed his name into the hat for mayor.

Biggs, who has been on the council for two years, served as an alternate on the Nolanville Planning and Zoning Commission before being elected to the council in 2012. He has lived in Nolanville since 2009 and grew up in the Killeen area.

“Somebody needs to fill the spot, and I figured, ‘Why not me?’” Biggs said Tuesday. “I’m still there trying to help out the city as best I can, and this is the next logical stop.”

Mayor Christina Rosenthal’s term ends in November. She has not filed for re-election.

Biggs’ seat is on the ballot in November, along with the seats held by David Escobar, Marlene Fey and Ernesto Servan.

City Secretary Crystal Briggs said the four incumbents are eligible for re-election. Escobar, Fey and Servan were appointed to their seats after council members resigned.

No other candidates have signed up to run for the four vacancies, Briggs said. They have until 5 p.m. Monday to do so.

“I’m hoping we’ll get people to run for those four vacancies,” Briggs said. “If not, we’ll have to have the council to appoint someone to complete the term.”
