From The News-Courier staff—
Voting in the general election ended yesterday, and hopefully we’ll know the results of the race for president between incumbent Donald Trump and challenger Joe Biden.
Almost overlooked because of the emphasis on the presidential race, Knox County voters also helped decide the U.S. House District 13 seat where Mac Thornberry is retiring. Republican Ronny Jackson and Democrat Gus Trujillo along with Jack Westbrook were the choices. Sen. John Cornyn also was in a race with Mary “MJ” Heger for one of the state’s two seats on the U.S. Senate.
Benjamin voters were being asked to approve a $21 million-bond election while Goree voters decided on the collection of a 1.4-cent sales tax to be used for street maintenance and Precinct 3 decided between Jimmy Urbanczyk and Ray Herring for a spot on the Knox County Commissioners Court.
Incumbents Sam Hunter and Mark Rocha, who filled a one-year term that expired last year, were in a three-way race with former member Bill Longan for a pair of three-year positions on the Munday Consolidated Independent School District board. In addition, Keith Kuehler and Megan Myers were running to fill a one-year term that will expire May 2021.
Incumbents Trey Singleton, Ryan Cottingham and Karen Longan were joined by John White in a race for three seats on the city council in Munday while incumbents J.R. Hodges and Fred Ledesma were joined by Kevin Urbanczyk, Kent Deville and Monica Meador in a contest for three two-year terms in Knox City.
Running unopposed were 50th Judicial District Judge Jennifer Habert, 50th district attorney Hunter Brooks, Knox Sheriff Hunter Embesi, Precinct 1 Commissioner Johnny McGown, Rep. James Frank and Sen. Charles Perry.
