Hutto Mayor Doug Gaul is the first Hutto City Council member to file for a re-election campaign and the first Hutto resident to file for any of the council races in the upcoming May 4 election.
Gaul announced Jan. 22 in a press release that he is seeking re-election for a second term as mayor of Hutto.
“As Hutto grows and welcomes new businesses and manufacturing companies, I look forward to a continued focus on strengthening relationships and working with the city council and staff to cultivate a community that is poised to grow smart and strong,” Gaul said in the press release.
Prior to his election to mayor in 2016, Gaul served on the Hutto ISD board of trustees for nine years, including four years as president of the board. Gaul has lived in Hutto for more than 25 years, according to his bio.
Four Hutto City Council places are up for election this May following the resignation of Place 4 Council Member Tim Jordan from the dais.
The filing deadline for the May 4 election is Feb. 15.
Correction: Doug Gaul has lived in Hutto for more than 25 years. It was incorrectly reported that Gaul lived in Hutto for more than 35 years.
