Don Warren, the owner of Lomoco, Inc., an oil and gas management firm, said Tuesday that he will seek the City Council District 4 seat next year. The current District 4 Councilmember, Martin Heines, recently announced his intention to run for mayor.

"After visiting with residents of the district as well as community leaders over the past several months, I am excited to announce my candidacy for City Council. Tyler has great momentum with the pay-as–you-go plan and the overall businesslike approach to City government. The City is in great shape because of the work of the strong management team and the commitment of current and past Mayors and Council Members. I believe my background and experience serving on City committees as well as other diverse community boards will be an asset in working as a member of the City Council. I have passion for the City and a desire to work together to build consensus on important projects that make our City great. I would consider it an honor to be elected to this position." said Warren in a release.

Warren, a graduate of Texas Tech University, has served as a volunteer on the City of Tyler Planning and Zoning Commission and is currently serving as Co -Chairman of the Bergfeld Park Improvement Project. Warren is also involved in the community as a Co-Chairman of the Downtown Tyler Art Center Task Force and as a Board member and volunteer at Gateway to Hope.
