Running against Marrs, the 66-year-old retired Oklahoma City fire chief, are James Greiner, 31, and Carolyn Sims, 63.

Marrs was elected in 2004 to complete the final year of now-Mayor Mick Cornett's term. Marrs was unopposed for re-election in 2005 and 2009.

McAtee, 74, was appointed to the council in 2001. White, 73, served on the council from 1982 to 1989 and returned after winning election in 2005.

White also serves as chairman of the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust.

Council members serve four-year terms and earn $12,000 per year.

Candidates can file by paying a $200 fee or by submitting 500 signatures of registered, eligible voters. All of this year's candidates paid the fee, said Doug Sanderson, the Oklahoma County Election Board secretary.

The general election is April 2.
