Round Rock ISD approves election results

Round Rock ISD has officially declared the outcome of the Nov. 6 election.

Superintendent Steve Flores joined trustees Charles Chadwell and Nikki Gonzales for a quorum of the board Nov. 19 to canvas the results. Chadwell and Gonzales represented the two trustees necessary for a quorum.

The results matched preliminary results that declared Amber Feller as the winner for Place 3 on the board, Cory Vessa for Place 4, Amy Weir for Place 5 and Steve Math for Place 6.

The district’s bond also passed.

“I want to thank all who voted in this election and voted for candidates or for or against the bond," Flores said. "Participation in these elections is so important."
