Wimberley dais turns over with new candidates

A changing of the guard will take place on the Wimberley City Council dais as three candidates who ran on the same platform claimed victory Saturday, according to unofficial, final results.

Rebecca Minnick, Christine Byrne and Bo Bowman won their respective seats by wide margins. All three ran similar campaigns highlighting what they felt were issues associated with Wimberley local government, including its wastewater woes.

In the Place 1 race, Minnick defeated Tim Dodson by 272 votes, or a 27 percent margin. Minnick held a 229 vote lead over Dodson after early voting numbers were released. The lead grew after Minnick secured 124 additional votes on Election Day.

Meanwhile, Byrne raced past incumbent Wimberley Mayor Susan Jaggers by a 33% margin in the Place 3 race.

Byrne led by more than 200 votes after the early voting period, which then swelled to a 334 vote margin Saturday.

In the Place 5 race, Bowman defeated incumbent Erik William by more than 200 votes.
