Unofficial voting results released March 2 show Landy Warren and Donna Parker will head to a runoff election to be held March 24 for the Republican nomination for the Williamson County commissioner Precinct 1 seat. With all precincts reporting, Parker has a narrow lead with 3,452 votes to Warren's 3,432, or 36.42 and 36.21 percent of the vote, respectively. Paul Matthews, who came in third with 2,594, or 27.37 percent of the vote, will not continue to the runoff.
In the race for the Democratic nomination for the Precinct 1 seat, Terry Cook beat Chad Chadwell with 63.98 percent of the vote, or 4,251 votes. Chadwell has 2,393 votes, or 36.02 percent of the vote.
Cook said her strategy for the fall election is to be strategic with the limited resources available.
"Democrats need a voice on the Commissioners Court," Cook said. "[Republicans are] not doing us any favors by going lock-step with each other."
Incumbent Lisa Birkman is not running for re-election.
Unofficial voting results indicate incumbent Valerie Covey beat challenger Matt Heaton for the Republican nomination for the Precinct 3 seat with 65.03 percent of the vote, or 13,496 votes. Heaton has 34.97 percent of the vote, or 7,256 votes.
Covey said she was honored to be the Republican nominee in the fall election for the seat she currently holds.
"My strategy will continue to be to stay positive and give the voters a reason to vote for me, and let them know what we've been successful with," Covey said.
Covey, a certified public accountant, has served on the Commissioners Court for nine years. Heaton is a businessman and former Marine.
The winner will go on to face Anthony Rector, the Democratic nominee, in the fall. Rector ran unopposed for the Democratic nomination.
All results are unofficial until canvassed.
