PHARR – As last Friday’s filing deadline wound down, six people – five men and one woman -- ended up plunking down their $1,000 filing fee and signed their names on the dotted line to run for the Pharr City Commission race. This year, three seats are up for grabs.

Hidalgo County Judge Ramon Garcia made the official announcement last week what most in the know were already expecting: he’s retiring from elected office when his term expires Dec. 31, 2018.

Now comes the interesting part: how many will choose to run against him in the Democratic Party Primary next March?
