Many mayoral, council seats up for vote May 6

By Mary Alys Cherry

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s almost time to vote again with municipal elections scheduled Saturday, May 6 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Several school districts also have trustees up for election.

Below are most of the area candidates up for election. In some instances – Clear Lake Shores, Kemah, Nassau Bay and Webster – the cities have canceled their election as the candidates have no opposition. League City and Baytown will hold their elections in November.  Voting in most small cities will be at the voter’s city hall.

Most candidates for one post? Pasadena, where seven are in the race to replace term-limited Johnny Isbell as mayor. Second most is in Pearland, where six have their eyes on one council seat.

Clear Creek ISD Trustee Win Weber decided not to run again after several terms on the board. Her seat will be filled by former Nassau Bay City Manager Chris Reed, who drew no opposition after signing up to run for the seat. Trustee Ken Baliker, an energy company executive whose seat also is up for re-election, faces a challenge by energy company CEO Arturo Sanchez III.

CCISD voters also will decide a $487 million bond referendum.
