by | May 7, 2023 | Area news, Latest

MDD and 4B propositions do not pass

Coleman Strickland received 194 of 252, or 77% of votes cast for Place 1, Farmersville city council. Mary Berry received 26 votes and Richard Repp received 32 votes.

Ted Wagner was re-elected to Place 3 on city council, running unopposed. He received 145 votes.

Two propositions on the city ballot did not pass. Proposition 1 to create a municipal development district received 131 of 1,008 votes in favor and 877 votes, or 87%, opposed. 

Proposition 2 which would terminate Farmersville Community Development Corporation, Type 4B, failed with 112 of 270 votes, or 41.5% in favor and 158 votes, or 58.5% opposed.

In the Farmersvillle ISD trustee Position 5 election, Kiel Cathey received 293, or 44.9% of 653 votes cast. Jim Hemby received 289 votes, or 44.3% and Ryan Calender received 71 votes, or 10.9%.

Brian Brazil, Position 6, received 513 votes and Jason McTee, Position 7, received 524 votes. Both were unopposed in their re-election bids.

Two races for the Collin College Board of Trustees election appear to be headed to a runoff election after no candidate garnered the required 50% threshold.

With all 62 voting centers in Collin County reporting results for the May 6 election, unofficial tallies have been released by the county election administrator. The unofficial results are required to be canvassed in the coming weeks.

Place 1 incumbent Fred Moses was narrowly defeated in his re-election bid by Megan Wallace. Moses received 31,896 votes, 49.93% of ballots, compared to Wallace’s 31,982, or 50.07% of ballots. Because Wallace cleared the 50% threshold, she will represent Place 1.

Place 2 appears to be headed to a runoff election with incumbent Jay Saad and challenger Scott Coleman advancing. Saad received 27,229 votes, 44.24% of ballots, while Coleman received 30,221, 49.1% of ballots. The final challenger Philip Timmons received 4,095 votes, 6.65% of ballots, and will not advance.

Similar to Place 2, the race for Place 3 appears headed for a runoff election as well. Incumbent Stacey Donald received 27,804 votes, 45% of ballots, challenger Cathie Alexander received 25,907 votes, 41.93% of ballots, and challenger Joe Minissale received 8,070 votes, 13.07% of ballots. Donald and Alexander will advance to a runoff because they are the top two vote-getters.

Collin College trustees are elected to six-year terms.

Out of the 689,552 registered voters in Collin County, only 81,811, about 11.86% turned out during the May election.

All voting results are not official until canvassing is completed, respectively, by the city and school district in the coming week.
