Multiple local government races will be decided on the May 4 ballot in Grapevine, Colleyville and Southlake.

The filing period closed at 5 p.m. Feb. 16, and without any opposition filing against them, William D. Tate will get another term as Grapevine’s mayor, while Shawn McCaskill will be the new mayor in Southlake.

Grapevine races

Tate has filed for re-election and is running unopposed. Tate has been mayor since 1988 after also serving as mayor from 1973-85.

The race for Place 2 on the Grapevine City Council has two candidates. Challenger Jason Rash is running against incumbent Sharron Rogers.

She was first elected to council in 1985.

In Place 1, Paul Slechta is running unopposed. He was first elected in 2015.

Southlake races

In Southlake, McCaskill will ascend from his term as mayor pro-tem to the mayor, taking the spot currently held by John Huffman—who is running for a U.S. Congress position. McCaskill has been on council since 2015.

Current council member Randy Robbins is unopposed in Place 2, while Frances Scharli is the lone candidate to replace McCaskill in Place 3.

Colleyville races

Colleyville has two council spots open, and neither of the incumbents is running again. Neither Chuck Kelley in Place 5 nor Mayor Pro Term Callie Rigney in Place 6 filed to seek another term. Both were elected for the first time in 2018, but neither could run again due to term limits.

In Place 5, Kimberly Holt Gunderson is running unopposed. Tim Raine and Tim Waterworth will seek the Place 6 position.
