Brenham’s Ward 2 City Councilmember, Albert Wright, has filed for re-election in May.
Wright, the senior pastor at New Life Church of God in Brenham, has served on the council since being appointed in September 2018. He ran unopposed in May 2019.
Wright appreciates what he has learned working with the city thus far and says he enjoys serving and listening to the public.
A key issue for Wright is ensuring Brenham’s infrastructure can keep up as the city grows, while also making sure the city’s budget is balanced and its services affordable.
Wright says he is proud of helping to bring the Brenham Crossing shopping center to town and start the Market Square mixed retail and residential development. He also wants to continue the work done to improve city parks, streets and drainage.
Wright believes his experience, knowledge and ability to listen make him an asset on the council.
So far, the lone contested race on the council is for mayor, between Atwood Kenjura and Keith Hofmann. Milton Tate is not running for another term as mayor. The Ward 4 council seat of Adonna Saunders is also up for election, and she has filed.
Filing for the Brenham City Council elections on May 6th continues through February 17th. There is a separate filing period for the Ward 3 council position vacated by Kenjura following his declaration for the mayor’s seat. Candidates for that seat can file between February 2nd and March 6th.
