Palermo Galindo and John Henry are the Democratic candidates for the district.
"Serving the community has always been a passion of mine. Through the years I have been working with the community," said Galindo.
"I just think it is my time, I'm 63, I should give back to the community a little bit now," Henry said.
Galindo already has some experience working with government.
He is a neighborhood liaison and was on the working committee to improve trash collection after Red River's very rocky start in the Summit City.
That committee was headed by Didier.
"Having those interactions with the business owners and the neighborhoods have really helped me think about some of things we can work together," said Galindo.
John Henry, a cousin of Mayor Tom Henry, said he feels it is time for a change.
"It's time to get some new blood into city council," Henry told FOX 55.
He said he thinks his marketing background would be beneficial to the city.
"Now I think the city, in two ways, need some good marketing support. Not only to get out about the city. There are many, many, many opportunities for cities of our size and growing at a rapid pace," said Henry.
Galindo is focused on improving neighborhoods across the city
"Have better infrastructure, parks within the neighborhoods that may have been a little neglected," said Galindo.
Early voting is happening now. Primary Day is May 7.
