Candidates filed for seats in the Mustang City Council and Mustang School Board last week. 

For the City, former councilwoman, Kathleen Moon, was the only one that filed for Ward 2, currently held by Mark Grubbs. Grubbs defeated Moon in the 2010 election and announced last week at a council meeting that he is moving into Ward 4 and does not plan to run for office again. Moon will join the council after the election. 

For the Ward 4 seat, incumbent Terry Jones filed for another term and will meet challenger, Tim Mount, who is the son of Ward 6 Councilman Don Mount, in the April 2 election. 

For the school board seat, former Mayor, Jeff Landrith, was the only one that filed for the five-year term. He will take the seat of long-time school board member, Jeff Johnson. 

“I am interested in learning about how our children are educated and wanted to contribute to any improvements to that process,” Landrith said. “My personal interests are emphasizing more technology education for the students and promoting a good working relationship with the city.”

Landrith graduated from Mustang High School in 1989 and both his parents also graduated from MHS. He is a computer engineer for L-2 Security Intelligence Solutions and is married to his wife Kelly and they have two children, Waverly and Wilder.
