EL PASO, Texas - Incumbent City Representative Jim Tolbert and political newcomer Alexsandra Annello will face off in a runoff election.
Six candidates were vying for the El Paso City Council District 2 Seat, which encompasses parts of Central, northeast and east El Paso.
Candidates running for the position include: Incumbent Tolbert, Alexander Burnside, Raul Valdez, Delores Beca, Jud Burgess and Annello.
Prior to election day, ABC-7 reached out to all six candidates, however only three returned our calls.
Tolbert is running for re-election after serving the remainder of former City Rep. Larry Romero's term. He said street repairs seem to eb the chief complaint of voters in District 2.
"I think the big issue for most people is the streets and sidewalks. And I have recently discovered the standard by which the city paves streets is really skewed to helping the east side and the west side. And we need to make that change so it is helping more of central El Paso where the infrastructure is just in terrible shape," Tolbert said.
