Big Spring - The race to determine who will lead Big Spring got a little more crowded.
Roger Rodman and Manuel Ramirez Jr. have joined Larry McLellan on the ballot for the Big Spring mayoral election this May.
Rodman, 65, a medical technologist at Scenic Mountain Medical Center, said his relationship with current Mayor Tommy Sullivan — who announced earlier this year he would not seek re-election — influenced his decision to toss his hat into the political arena, according to the Big Spring Herlad.
Ramirez, 48, is an internet technology analyst at the Big Spring VA medical center and a former two-term city councilman.
Rodman, McLellan and Ramirez will square off in the May 11 election.
McLellan, a former president of the Big Spring Economic Development board of directors and owner of Leonards Pharmacy, was the first candidate to file for the mayoral election.
Filing for the position ended Friday.
