UPDATE September 01, 2021: The following candidate names will appear in the following order as drawn during the September 01, 2021 ballot placement drawing.
It's been just a couple days since our two Town Council seats have opened resulting in a Special Election and already, there are FOUR candidates that have come to Town Hall to file for the positions. As of 5:00 PM this afternoon the following individuals have submitted their paperwork for the November ballot:
Place 2 - Jeff Beach and Mike Roberts
Place 5 - Ron Sheehan and LuAnne Oldham
Each candidate must meet the Town's Election Charter qualifications whereas they:
1) Must be at least 18 years old ✔️
2) Must be a U.S. Citizen ✔️
️3) Must be a registered Town voter ✔️
4) Must currently (or within the last 12 months) live in TC ✔️
5) Must only be applying for ONE open position per election ✔️
6) Must NOT be a Town employee ✔️
7) Must NOT be a current sitting Council Member ✔️
The great news is all four of the candidates listed above meet these requirements. The last piece of the process is the election itself. Per the Town Charter, the candidate who receives the MAJORITY of ALL votes cast shall be declared elected..... which means the winner of the election for each place will be decided by 50% PLUS 1 of the votes. If they don't receive the 50% plus 1, the Town will issue a call for a runoff election to be held within thirty (30) days following the issuance of such call, or in accordance with the Texas Election Code.
We appreciate the excitement and support of these residents to step up for their place on the dais! For questions or information, please visit www.trophyclub.org/election
