The landscape of the race for one Bryan city council seat has changed dramatically after a pair of announcements.
Annette Stephney, the current representative for Single Member District 2, has announced she will not be seeking reelection, due, in part, to some family issues she wants to devote time to.
Stephney served two full terms before Paul Madison succeeded her. But when Madison chose to run for Brazos County Commissioner last year, Stephney won the election to serve the remaining year of that term.
Madison lost that run for the commissioner, but will look to regain his seat on Bryan's council as he runs again for Single Member District 2.
The fourth-generation Bryan resident served five years in the position, which included a stint as Bryan's Mayor Pro Tem. He also has worked with the Bryan Business Council and the Research Valley Partnership.
Former A&M vet technician Karen Zimmerman-Gonzales, who currently works for Genetics Resources International, has also announced she will run for the job.
