Bob Willoughby, a frequent speaker at city meetings, filed to run in District 5 on Fort Worth’s City Council. Four people are officially running for the seat, including Gerardo Sanchez Corona, William McKinley Jackson and incumbent Gyna Bivens. 

Willoughby has previously run for District 5 multiple times. He is a sharp critic of the current council and has accused various city officials of lying and corruption.

District 5 includes parts of southeast Fort Worth.

Candidates across all 11 districts will vie for a seat at the dias May 6. Of the nine incumbents, five have filed for reelection so far. 

Municipal elections are coming up. Here are some key dates:

Feb. 17: Last day for candidates to file
April 6: Last day to register to vote
April 24: Early voting begins 
May 2: Early voting ends

Two districts — 10 and 11 — will be filled for the first time, after the city council passed a redistricting map to establish them.
