Today saw the last full day of filing for the May primary election.
Tomorrow, candidates have a half-day of opportunity as the filing deadline is noon.
Today saw Republican Tom Freistroffer announce and file for the Fort Wayne City Council At-Large race and Democrat Mike Avila file for the 4th District race.
Also filing today was Republican Anthony Gordon who also filed for the At-Large race.
A bit of a surprise to some was the filing in the 6th District City Council race of Democrat Rev. Michael Latham, Sr. Â Latham was the former head of the local NAACP chapter. Â He will face incumbent Democrat Glynn Hines in the May primary election.
One more Republican joined the Mayor’s race – Terrence Walker filed today as well.
As mentioned above, noon tomorrow is the deadline for Democrat and Republican candidates to file.
