CITY COUNCIL

Freddie Taylor and Emily Glass won seats on the Sulphur Springs City Council following the unofficial vote count Saturday night.

 

 

Taylor, an incumbent, defeated Charles Oxford by a margin of 329-162 (67 percent to 32 percent) for Place 4, in unofficial returns.

In Place 5 voting, Emily Glass unseated incumbent Gary Spraggins by a total of 237 votes to 218 (52 percent to 47 percent).

Vote totals are unofficial until they have been verified by the city council.

 

SCHOOL ELECTIONS

The school trustees elections in Yantis and Como-Pickton Saturday went to the incumbents. In each district, both incumbents earned the most votes for two at-large trustee seats on their school boards.

In Yantis Indepenent School District’s race for two three-year trustee seats, Mike Kenney and Joni Moreland beat out challenger Colby Ogles by only nine votes. Kenney and Moreland each received 52 votes to Ogles’ 42 votes.

The elections results are unofficial until they can be canvassed and affirmed at an upcoming school board meeting. The YISD board will set that day at tonight’s regular May school trustees meeting.

In Como-Pickton Consolidated Independent School District, incumbents Beth Hankins and Greg Anglin won the two four-year terms on the school board by large margins. Beth Hankins received 105 votes, Gregg Anglin 89 and Leigh-Manuell 46.

The results are scheduled to be canvassed at the school board meeting Wednesday, May 15.

Sulphur Springs Independent School District was not required to hold an election as it only had three people sign up to run for three full three-year term seats on the board. Leesa Toliver and incumbents Kerry Wright and John Prickette will take the oath of office during the 6 p.m. board meeting Monday in SSISD Administration Building’s board room.
