Early voting begins April 27 in the general election that will decide local school board and city council races.
In the City of Pearland, four candidates – Adrian Hernandez, Derrick Reed, Quentin Wiltz and Trent Perez – are vying for Council Position No. 2 being vacated by Scott Sherman. In Position No. 4, Councilman Keith Ordeneaux is being challenged by Adrienne Bell.
In Pearland ISD, Trustee Virgil Gant is running for reelection against challengers Mark Lewis and Kelvin L. Williams. Trustee Andrew Solomon is challenged by Sean P. Murphy for Position No. 4.
All school board positions in Pearland ISD are at-large, meaning each trustee represents the entire district rather than one area. Runoffs are not conducted unless candidates tie.
The last day for early voting is May 5. Brazoria County “vote centers” will open on election day at 7 a.m. and remain open until 7 p.m.
