Dan Barrios requested a candidate information packet. He ran for Place 3 in 2019, losing a ruoff to current Mayor Pro Tem Janet DePuy by just 82 votes. No one has yet officially filed to run in Place 3.

Stephen Springs has reported filed for a place on the ballot in Place 3. Once his application is approved, he'll be the first candidate on the ballot for Place 3.
