Cumby Mayor, School Bond On Nov. 5 Ballots
Cumby Independent School District’s incumbents weren’t challenged in their bids for reelection to the board of trustees, nor were those hoping to serve as aldermen on Cumby City Council.
CISD President Jason Hudson, Jody Jarvis and Secretary Tony Aguilar were the only candidates to turn in applications for a place on the Nov. 5 Cumby ISD Board of Trustees ballot.
Similarly, the only candidates to file for alderman seats on Cumby City Council were incumbent Betty McCarter for Place 4, incumbent Julie Morris for Place 5 and Guy Butler for Place 3.
That doesn’t mean, however, that the school and city of Cumby won’t hold elections.
Voters will be asked to consider approving a school bond for Cumby ISD and to select their choice for Cumby mayor. Incumbent Place 1 Alderman Mayor Pro Tem Doug Simmerman, who serves on the mayor pro tem, and Ryan Horne are both seeking election as mayor for the city of Cumby.
The drawing for placement on the Nov. 5 ballot in the City Council election will be conducted at 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26, at Cumby City Hall.
Cumby ISD also will ask voters to consider approving a $6.2 million bond for the construction, renovation, improvement and equipment of school buildings in the district, and athletic facilities and associated improvements. The bond money is needed in order to fully fund the $6.2 million in improvements.
