There are certain requirements to run for NRH City Council. Those requirements are outlined by the City Charter and Election Code and can be found here.
Two forms are required to run for City Council: (1) Appointment of Campaign Treasurer and (2) Application for place on the ballot.
The City Charter requires a candidate application must be accompanied by a filing fee of $150.00 or a petition containing the valid signatures of at least 150 registered voters in the City of North Richland Hills.
The City Charter provides for payment of fifty dollars ($50.00) per meeting attended by elected officials. The City Council traditionally meets twice a month.
Your appointment of campaign treasurer form and application are filed with the City Secretary’s Office during the filing period. The filing period begins January 15, 2020 and the last day to file is February 14, 2020.
The forms can be obtained from the City Secretary’s Office during business hours. The forms are also available on the City’s website.
