No May 11 elections for Southlake, probably Colleyville

Southlake has cancelled its May 11 elections for lack of opposition.

The two unopposed candidates for city council are Randy Williamson and Laura Hill. They will fill the positions held by Al Zito and Jeff Wang, both of whom chose not to run after their terms expired this year.

The Southlake City Council cancelled the election at its March 19 meeting.

Colleyville also is heading toward cancelling its May election. The city cancels elections by ordinance, requiring a second reading. The first was March 19, and the second will be April 2.

Incumbent Mayor David Kelly and council member Carol Wollin will keep their positions, and newcomer Chuck Mogged Jr., will fill the seat that was held by council member Michael Muhm, who chose not to run.

The Grapevine-Colleyville ISD also includes two unopposed incumbents, Karen Deakin and Lisa Pardo.

On the Grapevine City Council, incumbent Mike Lease is running against Leon Leal. Incumbent Darlene Freed faces Marc Blum.

In the Carroll ISD, four candidates are running for two seats after incumbents John Thane and Sherri Williams decided not to run.

Westlake has five candidates running for three seats, plus a special election to fill a one-year term.
