Argyle Town Council Place 2 incumbent Ronald Schmidt defeated Mayor Bryan Livingston in the Place 2 race, with 635 votes, or 53% of the vote, to Livingston's 553 votes, or 47% of the vote.
Livingston is the current town mayor and opted not to run again for the mayor’s seat. Argyle Place 5 Council Member Rick Bradford ran unopposed for mayor and received 917 votes.
Argyle Place 4 candidate Casey Stewart defeated opponent Cindy Sheddy, with 55% of the vote, or 649 votes, to Sheddy’s 525 votes.
"I think for the last six years, we've done the citizens' work, and I am humbled by being able to serve them for another two years," Schmidt said.
He added that he wanted to focus on various municipal matters, such as bringing commercial entities to the town. The town is trying to hire a director of development to expedite that process and allow leaders to be selective in bringing businesses to the community as quickly as possible.
Despite running unopposed for his position, Bradford expressed gratitude for the people who voted for him.
"I'm excited and honored to be trusted with this level of leadership and I'm very excited about working with Ron Schmidt and Casey Stewart and the rest of the town council and moving the town forward and really restore some civility and some positive work into the town council," Bradford said.
Current Place 4 candidate Cynthia Hermann opted not to run again for council. Results from the May 6 election are unofficial until they are canvassed.
