The Farmersville City Council election also includes incumbent Mike Henry seeking another term in Place 4. He does not have an opponent.

The school district’s bond proposal includes a new elementary campus as well as upgrades to Farmersville Intermediate, Tatum Elementary, Farmersville Jr. High, Farmersville High and the Education Service Center.
