The number of May elections scheduled to be held in Hays County has shrunk.
Municipal elections slated in both Dripping Springs and Wimberley will not be held, since there are no contested races in either city.
In Dripping Springs, Mayor Todd Purcell was up for re-election, as were Place 2 council member Wade King and John Knoll, who represents Place 4. City Secretary Andrea Cunningham said since all three races are uncontested, the election will be called at the body’s next scheduled meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 10.
Similarly, there are no contested races in Wimberley, where Mayor Susan Jaggers, City Council Place 2 member Craig Fore and City Council Place 4 member Gary Barchfelt all faced expiring terms.
None sought re-election. Jaggers on Feb. 19 certified that mayoral candidate Gina V. Fulkerson, along with Teresa Shell for city council place 2 and Jim Chiles for city council place 4 were all unopposed.
The Wimberley City Council will next meet on Thursday, March 5, at 6 p.m.
