The former mayor of Keller will run again for the position in the spring election.
Pat McGrail, who was mayor from 2007 until losing the 2014 election to Mark Mathews, filed Friday to run for the position of mayor.
In a statement, McGrail said that when Mathews announced he would not seek re-election, several Keller residents encouraged him to run.
“They told me they worried that Keller might head down the wrong path without strong, independent and experienced leadership guiding our City Council,” McGrail said, adding that his decision to run is “not only right for Keller, but it’s an absolute necessity.”
