From The News-Courier staff—
Some of the local boards will have enough candidates to have an election on May 2 after last week’s deadline for filing.
The Munday Consolidated Independent School District will need an election as former trustee Bill Longan has joined incumbents Sam Hunter and Mark Rocha for two three-year terms. Keith Kuehler and Megan Myers will run for a one-year term.
No election will be needed for the four Benjamin Independent School District board positions as incumbents Kyle Emerson and Pate Meinzer will be joined by Amy White and Sal Silva.
The Knox City/O’Brien Consolidated Independent School District will see incumbent Scott Lynn stepping down with Nadia Rowland joining incumbents Clint Lewis, Joe Albus and Andy Shaver going forward. Shaver is filling an unexpired term. No election is necessary.
Janet Reed, who has been serving as Mayor Pro Tem, filed for mayor and will assume that post since no other candidates filed. Incumbent Charles Griffith will also return and the council will have to name a member for the post vacated by Reed.
Gene Ward will continue as the mayor of Knox City and incumbents J.R. Hodges and Fred Ledesma will remain on the council. Gary Schnable will step down and Kent Deville, Monica Meador and Kevin Urbanczyk will run for that post.
Incumbents Vickie Huffman, Trey Harlan and Mel Coffman will remain on the Goree City Council, but no one filed for mayor.
Incumbents Ryan Cottingham, Trey Singleton and Karen Longan will be joined by John White for three positions on the City of Munday council.
Incumbents Shirley Gass and Joann Albus will return to the Knox County Hospital District board, joining Tracy Cartwright and Joann Albus, appointed by Knox County.
