The Dripping Springs City Council has cancelled the May 2 General Election as all candidates running were unopposed following the candidate filing period that ended on Feb. 14. Due to the candidates running uncontested, the city is not required by law to hold a municipal election. All the uncontested candidates were declared winners.
Mayor Pro Tem Bill Foulds was elected mayor. He will be replacing Mayor Todd Purcell, who is stepping down in May. Incumbent Wade King was elected as Council member Place 2. April Harris Allison was elected as council member Place 4, replacing current member John Kroll who did not run again.
Elected members will be sworn into office at the May 12, city council meeting.
With Bill Foulds assuming the mayor position, that leaves a position open in Place 3. At the May 12 meeting, the city council will decide whether to hold a general election for Place 3 or appoint someone to the position.
