The mayor and two council member positions will be up for grabs in the city’s upcoming general election.

City Council on Monday officially called May 9 election, with a runoff election to be held June 9 if necessary. The city was among several in Galveston County to cancel general elections last year, due to no one challenging 2014 incumbents Billy Enochs and John Scott.

Up for election are the position of mayor, held by Kevin Holland, Position No. 1, held by Steve Rockey, and Position No. 3, held by Jim Hill. Positions are elected for three-year terms.

Filing applications are due by 5 p.m. Feb. 27, 2015. A packet with information for potential candidates is available, and may be picked up in the City Secretary’s office, during regular office hours.

For more information and/or applications, contact the City Secretary’s office at 281-996-3270.

In addition, the Clear Creek ISD board will hold an election for three positions: District 4 held by Page Rander, District 5 held by Dee Scott, and an at-large position held by Charles Pond.
