Oxford will challenge incumbent Place 3 Councilman Oscar Aguilar's bid for reelection to his council seat. Oxford, who served one term on the council, 2008-2011, has been unsuccessful in attempts to win another seat on the council since then. In seeking reelection to the council in 2011, Oxford lost to John Sellers by a vote of 663 to 376. In his challenge to Clay Walker a year later, Oxford again lost, this time with a vote of 507 to 274. Along with Aguilar, incumbents Craig Johnson (Place 1) and Clay Walker (Place 2) filed for reelection the first day of the filing period. The filing period for a place on the city council ballot closes at 5 p.m. today, according to City Secretary Gale Roberts. The city election will be held Saturday, May 9.
