There will be one contested race for Mexia ISD’s two open slots on the board of trustees, and none for the four open positions on City Council, when this May’s elections roll around.
The filing deadline for a place on the May 9 ballot for both the Mexia ISD Board of Trustees election and Mexia City Council elections was Friday, Feb. 27.
Places 6 and 7 were open on the Mexia ISD, spots currently filled by Jackie Craig and Ron Fowler, respectively. Both have filed for re-election, but Craig has drawn an opponent, Israel Flores.
Seats up for grabs on the Mexia City Council were those of District 1 Council member Glenn McGuire; Kelvin Beachum, representing District 3; District 4 Council member Judy Chambers and Mayor Troy Miller.
All four of those candidates have filed for re-election, and they are the only candidates who did so.
