Most voters in Tarrant County are done with local elections for now, but in central Arlington, residents can still vote on an important City Council race.

In District 5, retired physician Ignacio Nunez and financial adviser Andy Prior are facing off to take an open seat. Nunez, a veteran of the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission, led the first round of voting May 4 but fell short of the majority needed to win the seat outright.

Voters can read where each stands on important issues such as transportation, term limits and economic development in the Star-Telegram voter guide.

It’s an interesting time for central Arlington, with the Urban Union development bringing in small businesses that are drawing pedestrian traffic. And a new term-limits provision has prompted major turnover among City Council members. So, voters in the district should take the time to study the candidates and vote.

Early voting runs through June 4. Find a location here. Election Day is June 8.
