Voters headed to the polls Tuesday in southern Denton County to determine the outcome of several school races and issues as well as decide the fate of nine proposed state constitutional amendments.
Flower Mound resident Angie Cox came out on top in a three-way race for the vacant Lewisville ISD Place 3 seat with 45% of the vote over Paige Shoven (30%) and Tracy Miller (26%).
Cox, 43, is the owner of Cox Cleaning and Vice President/Escrow Officer for Allegiance Title, and has four children in the district.
“First of all I want to thank Tracy and Paige for running a clean campaign and I honestly think any of us would have made a good trustee,” said Cox. “I am looking forward to serving the district and I am going to stand behind the values that I campaigned on.”
Voters in Flower Mound approved the creation of a $16 million Public Improvement District (PID) to fund capital improvements inside The River Walk at Central Park mixed-use development north of FM 1171 between FM 2499 and Morriss Road.
The PID bonds will be repaid through assessments on property owners in the development.
“We were glad to see the outcome and the confidence that has been placed in both us and the town to move forward with developing a quality project,” said Kirk Wilson of Centurion American, developer of the The River Walk.
Denton ISD Bond
Voters easily passed a $312 million school bond package that will provide a fourth high school, a ninth grade addition to Guyer High School, one new middle school and two elementary schools, among other improvements, to the fast-growing district.
Bartonville Town Council
Jeff Traylor defeated Randy VanAlstine in Place 1 on town council with 67% of the vote, while Gary
Marco topped Richard Yerxa in Place 4 with 68% of the vote.
All nine state constitutional amendments were approved by voters.
