    Abilene citizen Cynthia Alvidrez has filed to run against Abilene city councilman Kyle McAlister.

    McAlister has been under fire for several weeks for a history of Facebook posts that were called racist. Alvidrez told KTXS that his remarks pushed her to run. "It influences a lot of other issues in our community."

    Hispanic community leaders have called for his resignation. They also wanted the council to censure him.

    The filing deadline is 5 p.m.

    The election is May 4.
