Voters will need to choose someone to fill the council seat of Frederick Frazier, who serves in an at-large capacity on the council. Frazier announced Oct. 15 his intention to run for state representative in House District 61.
House District 61 in Collin County was formerly known as House District 70 and represented by Scott Sanford, a news release from Frazier’s campaign stated. Sanford announced he will not be running for re-election after his term expires in January 2023. Gov. Greg Abbott signed the new map that included House District 61 on Oct. 25.
Frazier may continue to serve on the council until the election of a new member to replace him, Drane said. Whoever is elected to fill Frazier’s seat will serve the remainder of his term, which expires in 2023.
Drane said there are currently no election details that are set, but in a weekly Facebook post hosted by Mayor George Fuller and his wife Maylee Thomas-Fuller, Fuller said the election will be held in February. More information is expected following the Nov. 2 meeting.
