Denton City Council member Dalton Gregory, who is in the middle of his third and final term in District 2, has announced he will resign that spot in order to run at large in District 5 this spring.
The resignation is effective of the May election canvass date, which means Gregory will continue to serve through the spring.
Mayor pro tem Pete Kamp is not eligible to run again, having served three terms in District 5. Kamp made a similar move six years ago, resigning her council seat to run at large.
If he wins, he can continue to serve in District 5 for up to three terms. But if he loses, his resignation will create a vacancy on the council in May.
