On The Ballot

Most Texas cities and school districts are holding elections for their city councils and school boards. The Lewisville Texan Journal covers the City of Lewisville and the Lewisville Independent School District. For coverage in Highland Village, Flower Mound, Argyle, and Bartonville, please see the Cross Timbers Gazette.

Open in new windowLewisville City Council:
The Lewisville City Council consists of a Mayor and five Council Members. Council Members and the Mayor each serve three-year terms, and are elected "at-large", meaning that all residents of Lewisville can vote on each position, and each member represents all of the citizens. Two positions are up for election each year. This year's election is for place 4 and place 5. In order to win this election, a candidate must receive a majority of all votes cast in that position. If no candidate receives a majority, then there will be a runoff election between the top two vote-getters to determine the winner. After each year's election, the Council Members meet in closed session, then select a Mayor Pro Tem and Deputy Mayor Pro Tem from among the Council Members. City Council elections are non-partisan, meaning that ballot access is open to any candidate regardless of party. City Council members are paid only $50 per meeting, amounting to about $1,400 per year, which is likely not even minimum wage, considering the amount of time they devote.

Place 4: (in ballot order)
- Greg Tierney - [Background and Issues]
- John Gorena (Incumbent) [Background and Issues]

Place 5: (in ballot order)
- Raymond Daniels - [Background and Issues]
- Rudy Durham (Incumbent) - [Background and Issues]

Open in new windowLewisville ISD Board of Trustees
School districts in Texas are governed by locally-elected boards of trustees, who are responsible for setting policy and ensuring funding for the district. Lewisville ISD's Board of Trustees has seven elected board members, each serving three-year terms. Each year, either two or three positions come up for re-election. Even though the district is 127 square miles and covers portions of 13 municipalities, all seven seats are at-large, meaning that each position is elected by and serves the entire district. School board candidates run by position, and each position is won by the candidate receiving the most votes in that position, even if the candidate does not receive a majority of votes. Board members are NOT paid for their service. School board elections are non-partisan. Party affiliations are not included on the ballot, and ballot access is open to anyone regardless of party.


Place 3: (in ballot order)
- Mark Welding [Background and Issues]
- Paige Shoven [Background and Issues]

Place 4: (in ballot order)
- Kris Vaughn [Background and Issues]
- Jared Brueckner [Background and Issues]

Place 5: (in ballot order)
- Brenda Latham [Background and Issues]
- Ryan Collinsworth [Background and Issues]
- Lisa Rossi (Withdrawn)

 Re: Candidates Begin Filing for Local Office
Free advice for the two folks running for Place 5: Don't try to be clever by using just your initials on your campaign sign. That probably won't work.

Looking forward to the inevitable accidental name swapping we'll be seeing thoughout the campaign.

 Re: Place 4
I don't think Tierney ever showed up for city council with his judgment impaired, or ever will. As for Gorena, he always shows up dumber than a stick, and it is a sure bet he will keep doing it. Pretty much settles it for me.
