City Elections: Yesterday marked the start of the candidate filing period for all city, school and hospital district elections to be held Saturday, May 6. Filing continues through February 17 at the various administrative buildings. In the City of Liberty, three seats are up for election. Incumbent Dennis Beasley has already filed for a new term on council. Libby Simonson also plans to run again. The third incumbent, Diane Huddleston, said she has not yet decided if she will seek reelection in May. In the City of Dayton, Mayor Jeff Lambright and council members John Johnson and Troy Barton all have expiring city council terms. Mayor Lambright said, unless something changes, he intends to run again and indicates both of his fellow incumbents will also ask Dayton voters for another term.
DISD Board: Three seats are up for election on the Dayton school board. Those are incumbent Thomas Payne’s Position 3, Bob Pickle’s #4 and Kerri Bartee’s #7. Positions 3&4 are both full three-year terms while #7 has one year remaining on a three-year unexpired term. Mr. Payne and Ms. Bartee both say they will seek reelection to the Dayton school board while Mr. Pickle said he will not run again.
Liberty School Board: Liberty Independent School District trustees have set an election date for May 6 to elect two board members to full three-year terms. On Tuesday, Liberty trustees also called a special election for May 6 to elect two additional board members to fill the remaining two years of unexpired terms. One of those unexpired positions opened up Tuesday when Liberty school board President Lloyd Pierce announced his resignation from Position 4. He will continue to serve on the LISD board through that upcoming election. The other special election will fill the unexpired term of the late June Jackson, who died last March. Last year, Liberty trustees appointed Malcolm Goudeau Jr. to fill Jackson’s open seat until a special election could be held. Mr. Goudeau said he plans to run for that Position 7 seat in May. It also has two years remaining on the original three-year term. The two full three-year expiring terms on the Liberty school board are Patty Watson’s Position 1 and Brandon Smith’s Position 5. Patty Watson said she is leaning toward running again for that seat while Brandon Smith said, at this time, he is not planning to seek reelection in May.
