Julie Holmer won the Plano City Council Place 7 runoff election over Chris Robertson, according to June 5 election results.

Holmer ended with 53.36% of the vote compared to Robertson’s 46.64%, according to unofficial votes from Denton County and Collin County.

Holmer said she was encouraged by the support of her campaign team and the community members who encouraged her to run.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to represent the citizens of Plano, and I want to represent everyone in Plano," she said.

Echoing similar election night comments made by Place 4 winner Kayci Prince, Holmer said she was looking forward to giving a voice to the vast assortment of citizens who reside in Plano.

"I'm looking forward to building a pipeline of future leaders in Plano that are going to be diverse and properly represent the diversity that we have in Plano. I think that's really important. It looks like we'll have three women on council, but we only have one minority on council, and I don't think that's an accurate reflection of our population."

Holmer received the most votes in the May 1 election with 10,890 votes for 33.8%, and Robertson had 10,506 for 32.6% in the five-way race. As none of the candidates in that race received at least 50% of the votes cast, the two candidates with the most votes moved to the runoff election.
