|(Seguin) -- Two city council races have been canceled in the city of Seguin. The Seguin City Council Tuesday night canceled the council races in voting districts five and eight. Both races drew only a single candidate, so there's no real need for an election. |
The move means that District 8 Councilman Mark Herbold is effectively re-elected to his position, while political newcomer Jeremy Roy will take over the now vacant District 5 seat. The seat was previously held by Councilman Carlos Medrano, who died back in July.
While those two races are off, there are still two contested races on the city's ballot in November. In District 3, Incumbent Jim Lievens is being challenged by Chris Aviles. And in District 7, two political newcomers are on the ballot. Penny Wallace and William Odom are vying for the seat currently held by Councilwoman Donna Dodgen. Dodgen was not able to seek re-election, because of the city's eight-year term limit.
The city council election will be held as part of the General Election on Tuesday, November 6.
