Josh Schroeder is the new mayor of Georgetown with 100% of Williamson County polling locations reporting.

He won by 64.54%. Opponent Jonathan Dade had 25.90% of votes and Larry Brundidge had 9.56%.

Schroeder is an attorney and has served on numerous Georgetown boards and committees in the past.

"Georgetown is in the adolescent stage of its growth," he told Community Impact Newspaper previously. "Over the next five to 10 years, we have to emphasize public safety, transportation and transparency. We also have to actively seek the public's input so we can keep Georgetown the same wonderful small-town community we've all chosen as our hometown."

Transportation and transparency are the most pressing issues for the city, Schroeder said.


"Every second you sit in traffic on Williams Drive chips away at that small-town feel," he said. "We have to address this problem immediately. We must restore trust between the community and its elected officials and staff by being completely transparent."

Schroeder will replace Dale Ross, who served as mayor for six years and a council member for nine years prior to that. Schroeder will serve until May 2023. The Georgetown mayor is elected at large, while the council members are elected from single-member districts.
