Howard Smith to Run for Council

Howard Smith, a local realtor, will be a candidate for Amarillo City Council, in May.

A source close to Smith confirmed that the realtor will be seeking the Place 4 seat on the Amarillo City Council. That seat, which is currently held by Councilmember Mark Nair, could be an open seat. Nair has reportedly not decided on whether he will seek the office for a second term.

Smith's last elected role was on the Amarillo Independent School District Board of Trustees, where he served for ten years.
