He named Ann Smith as his campaign treasurer. In addition, Denton businessman Jason Cole withdrew from the District 3 race on Tuesday. 

With Cole's withdrawal, that still leaves three candidates in the race. Davis faces challenges from Diana Leggett and Matthew Farmer, who filed to run in District 3 last month. 

Candidates have until 5 p.m. Friday to file for the ballot. 

The election, which includes all four district seats on the City Council, is Saturday, May 4.
