Harvey’s application was accepted Friday.

Harvey joined the Pharr Police Department as its police chief in July 2020. He later added city manager to his title in April 2022.

He resigned from both of his positions last September.

Harvey and Hernandez could not be reached for comment.

A third person — Ricardo Pedraza - is also running for mayor.
