Municipal Elections: The candidate filing period for the May 6 city and school district elections begins tomorrow and continues through Friday, February 16. Those on Liberty City Council with expiring terms are Mayor Carl Pickett and council members David Arnold, Paul Glazener and Louie Potetz. Carl Pickett and Paul Glazener say they will seek new terms. David Arnold and Louie Potetz say they have not yet decided. In conjunction with the council elections, the City of Liberty is also holding a special election to allow city residents an opportunity to vote on seven proposed amendments to the city’s Home Rule Charter.
****************************************************
GOP Forum: A political forum is set for the two March 6th Republican Primary candidates for Dist. 18 State Representative. It’s Tuesday, January 23, at 6 p.m. in the Hardin Community Center. The two Republican candidates are incumbent District 18 State Rep. Ernest Bailes of Shepherd and challenger Emily Kebodeaux Cook of Liberty. The winner of that March 6th primary will face Democrat Fred Lemond of Raywood in the November General Election. The January 23 GOP event is sponsored by four groups - the Southeast Texas Young Republicans, Liberty County Republican Women, Republican Liberty Caucus of Texas and the Southeast Texas Shark PAC.
****************************************************
School Board Recognition: January is School Board Recognition Month, a chance to build awareness of the crucial role elected trustees play in their Texas communities. School board members – working without pay - tackle the enormous job of governing school districts. Their actions and decisions affect both the present and future lives of children. Just in the seven school districts of Liberty County, there are 49 volunteers now serving as elected board members. Even though showing appreciation for the countless hours these unpaid elected officials dedicate to the children of Liberty County should be done year-round, taking advantage of the designated school board recognition month – January - assures these special folks get some of the thanks they each deserve.
****************************************************
