“Over the last two years, being on council and serving on the board of directors for the Greater Waco Chamber has definitely opened my eyes to economic development, the partnership between the city, the county and the chamber,” Sabido said.
Holmes, a senior vice president at First National Bank of Central Texas, was first appointed to the position in 2016, was elected in 2017 and reelected in 2019.
Holmes said if elected to a second full term, he wants to keep focusing on developing infrastructure in the district’s fast-growing residential areas. He also said economic development will be particularly important when it comes to recovering economically from the ongoing pandemic, and said the city’s small business relief fund could outlast the pandemic.
“I think I’m best qualified just through the years of experience I’ve had on council, and really coupled with my business experience,” Holmes said.
Other races up for May 1 include the following:
At-large Council Member Michael Bancale was the first to file Wednesday in the Hewitt City Council race.
Other positions on the ballot include the Ward 2 seat now held by Bob Potter, who won a November race to fill an unexpired term.
