Retired Councilman John Lyons waited to the last minute today, and filed to run in this November's Artesia City Council election.
Lyons retired from the Artesia City Council less than two years ago.
He will be challenging incumbents Sally Zuniga Flowers, Mayor Pro-Tem Victor Manalo and Businessman/Mechanical Engineer Indu Patel in the Fall campaign.
Seen above are candidates Manalo and Patel during the Artesia's Mayoral Transition held last night.
This will be a hard fought, spirited campaign, that promises to be a wide open affair between the four well known candidates.
