Election Results

Flower Mound voters stormed the polls Saturday with waits of up to two hours to decide a historic election for the town.

Mayorial candidate Melissa Northern, Town Council incumbent Al Filidoro and council newcomer Steve Lyda, all closely aligned against urban gas drilling, defeated three-term Mayor Jody Smith and council candidates Gerald Robinson and Bryan Webb.

Voters also narrowly rejected a proposal to purchase land and build a new soccer complex at Chinn Chapel and Waketon, and sell the existing complex on FM 407.

Lantana residents gave Max Miller and Donna Robichaux second terms on the Fresh Water Supply District #6 board over challenger Beka Weaver, while Andrew Kloser and David Ware defeated incumbent Mike Shaw and Robert Smith in the first election in District #7 since residents moved into the district.

In Copper Canyon, a $2.5 million bond proposal for street and bridge improvements – the first ever for the town – was narrowly approved.

Bartonville voters gave thumbs up to the reauthorization of the one quarter of one percent local sales tax for street maintenance and repair, and the creation of a permanent Crime Control and Prevention District with a sales tax rate of one quarter of one percent. Bartonville now has the maximum state allowed sales tax rate of 8.25%.

It was out with the old and in with the new in the Lewisville ISD, as voters chose newcomers in all three board races.

Jeff Knapp defeated incumbent Tommy Kim in Place 3, Julie Foughty won by a handful of votes in Place 4 over incumbent Kathy Duke, and Brenda Latham edged out incumbent Fred Placke in Place 5.

In contrast, voters in the Denton ISD kept the same faces on the school board.

In Place 3, Dr. Glenna Harris defeated Sheryl English. Dr. Harris has served on the board since 2007 and is currently board secretary.

In Place 5, Charles Stafford topped Calvin Evans. Stafford is past president of the board and has served since 2004. He also served from 1988 to 1994. Evans served on Place 5 of the board from 1995 to 2004.

Mia Price was unopposed in Place 4 and was declared an elected trustee. She has served on the board since 2001.
