Voters headed to the polls Saturday in southern Denton County to determine the outcome of several municipal and school board races. Here are the results:
In the hotly contested Lewisville ISD Place 7 race, Tracy Scott Miller defeated longtime trustee Carol Kyer, 57 percent to 43 percent.
“I think teachers made the difference in this campaign and ultimately the taxpayers will also be a benefactor as we move forward and look at how to best serve our kids by putting in place programs that really focus on student achievement and doing what’s best for the kids,” said Miller.
Kyer is finishing up her fifth-consecutive term on the school board in Place 7 and was first elected in May of 1999.
