Election Results

Voters headed to the polls Saturday in southern Denton County to determine the outcome of municipal and school board races.

In Flower Mound, no one candidate in the four-way mayoral race reached a majority of the vote, so the top two vote-getters, Steve Dixon and Cathy Strathmann, are headed to a runoff election on June 16.

“I am honored to be elected and am thankful for those who voted for me,” said Engel.  “I am ecstatic.”

When asked why he believes people voted for him, he replied: “Residents  in the town were dissatisfied with the direction the town has been headed; the apartments and multi-family developments.”

In the Lewisville ISD Pace 1 race, incumbent Kronda Thimesch won with 56% the vote over Sandra Weinstein.
