Get to Know the Candidates & the Required Filings

This page is for the purpose of making Candidate filings transparent.   Under Title 15 of the Texas Election Code candidates, officeholders, and specific-purpose committees are required to file their campaign finance reports with the City Secretary’s Office (Local Filing Authority).

By law, the City Secretary does not supervise, direct or otherwise advise candidates regarding the forms required or content included in any form filed with the Office of the City Secretary.

As a service to the public, the various forms have been filed for the May 6, 2023, General Election.

If an Officeholder, past candidate, or any Specific-Purpose Committee still has a Treasurer on file, those reports are also posted below.
