ORIGINAL POST:

In early, unofficial results, Terry Cummings is leading Jeffrey K. Morales in the race for Buda City Council District C. Cummings has 160 votes, or 64.26%, while Morales has 89 votes.

The seat opened up when Mayor Pro Tem Wiley Hopkins decided not to run for re-election.

District C is one of the three seats that went from at-large representation to single-member in 2018, so only some residents were able to vote in the contest.

Council Member Lee Urbanovsky's seat was also up for election this year, but he was unopposed.

All votes are unofficial until canvassed.
