Belton has three expiring terms: two councilmember positions, and the mayor position:

  • Mayor Marion Grayson
  • Mayor Pro Tem Wayne Carpenter
  • Councilmember Guy O’Banion

Mayor Grayson announced she will not seek re-election following six years of service as mayor and another 10 as a councilmember.

City Council incumbent Guy O’Banion filed for office on Tuesday. He is seeking a fourth term. In addition to O’Banion, two others have filed for office. Mayor Pro Tem Carpenter is running for mayor and Parks Board member Daniel Bucher is a City Council candidate.

Councilmembers serve two-year terms. They meet in regularly scheduled meetings twice a month, and each receives a $1 annual payment for his or her service. A candidate packet, which includes filing information, is available online here for residents interested in running for a position on the Belton City Council.

Election Day is May 2.
