Southlake and Colleyville have both canceled their May 6 general elections for city council positions after candidates ran unopposed. Each city's council voted to suspend the election on March 7.

Southlake City Council Member Kathy Talley and Mayor Pro Tem Randy Williamson have been re-elected to their positions. Talley holds Place 1 and joined the council in 2020. She is a member of the Carillon Parc Public Spaces Steering Committee, Southlake Arts Council, and Southlake Parks and Development Corporation, according to the city’s website.

Williamson was elected to Place 6 in 2020 and previously served as Place 4 council member from 2013 to 2019. He has served on the Southlake 2030 Committee, Parks and Recreation Board, and the Planning and Zoning Commission.

“We’re very grateful that you instill your trust in us to help our city staff take care of this great city that we love so much,” Talley said. “It’s an honor and a privilege. ... I look forward to three more years.”

In Colleyville, places 3 and 4 will not appear on the May ballot because neither candidate drew an opponent during the filing period. Place 3 and Place 4 will be held by newcomers Scotty Richardson and Ben Graves, respectively.

Colleyville will hold a special election May 6 for voters to decide whether or not to continue the Colleyville Crime Control and Prevention District. The district is funded by a half cent of sales tax and supports crime control and prevention programs throughout the city. If approved, the district will be authorized for another 20 years, according to the city’s website.

“We want everybody to exercise their right to vote,” Colleyville Mayor Bobby Lindamood said.

Residents in Southlake and Colleyville can also vote for trustee positions within their respective school districts, Carroll ISD and Grapevine-Colleyville ISD.
