City Council candidates are preparing for another month of campaigning as four contenders head into a June runoff election to claim their seats on the Irving City Council.
The runoff elections for Place 1, where John Danish will face Loren Byers, and Place 2, where Allan Meagher will face Kensley Stewart, will take place on June 15.
In the May 11 election for Place 1, Danish took 49 percent of 593 votes. Byers earned 32 percent. Luis Reyes followed with 11 percent of votes and Juan Martin Ronco, Jr. took about 7 percent.
In the race for Place 2, an at-large position, Meagher received about 38 percent of 4,684 votes. Stewart took about 28 percent of the vote. Rene Castilla managed about 26 percent of votes and Francis Schommer only earned 7 percent of votes.
Gerald Farris won the place 7 seat by default.
