Friday is deadline for elections

In News by Reporter News

If no one submits an application by the Friday deadline, Friendswood will have an uncontested city council race again this year.

Though neighboring cities of Pearland and La Marque have drawn challengers for city council positions, Friendswood’s May 9 election will essentially be a done deal should there be no takers by the 5 p.m. Feb. 27 filing deadline. The city last year canceled the election after incumbents drew no challengers.

Potentially up for grabs this May are the position of mayor, now 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. Candidate packets must be picked up during business hours at the City Secretary’s Office. For more information and/or applications, call 281-996-3270.

The council normally meets on the first Mondays, with some special meetings called when necessary through the year. Visit www.ci.friendswood.tx.us for information.

Filing also ends Friday for candidates seeking a seat on the Clear Creek ISD Board of Trustees.

Up for election this year are the District 4 position, held by Page Rander, the District 5 seat, held by Dee Scott, and an at-large position held by Charles Pond.

To apply for a position on the CCISD ballot, pick up a candidate application packet at the CCISD Education Support Center, 2425 E. Main Street, League City. The packet can be requested in email form by emailing Beatriz Bentley at [email protected]

Early voting in the election is set to begin on April 27 and continue through May 5.

Polling places, sample ballots and other information can be found online at www.Galvestonvotes.org.
