Koch leads Rizo by 79 votes in Kyle City Council race


According to unofficial election results released Nov. 6, Rick Koch received 3,268 votes in the race for Kyle City Council Place 5, while opponent Robert Rizo received 3,189 votes.

The Place 5 seat is the city’s only competitive election this cycle. It became open after City Council Member Damon Fogley, whose term expired this year, announced he would not run for re-election.

A longtime Kyle resident, Rizo has been involved in several community organizations as a coach, teacher or volunteer. Koch is the current chair of the city’s planning and zoning commission.

City Council Member Daphne Tenorio ran unopposed for her current seat, Place 6.
