Election day results from May 1 show Arefin Shamsul and Marilyn Frederick headed for a runoff for the Richardson City Council Place 6 seat while Joe Corcoran defeated incumbent Kyle Kepner for the Place 4 position.
All precincts are reporting.
Shamsul received the most votes in the Place 6 race with 40.5% followed by Frederick's 30%. As none of the three candidates in the race received at least 50% of the votes cast, Richardson will hold a runoff election between those two on June 5. Early voting will be May 24-June 1.
Daniel Burdette just missed the Place 6 runoff after receiving 29.5% of the votes in the race. Shamsul is founder and chief executive officer of Stream Water Group Inc., Frederick is a Realtor/broker, and Burdette is a software development manager at Bio-Rad Laboratories.
Corcoran's 53.4% of the votes was enough to unseat Kepner, who received 46.6% of the Place 4 votes. Corcoran, who works in corporate compliance, will serve a two-year term on council. Kepner, owner of The Wine Authority, was seeking his second term.
Mayor Paul Voelker, Place 1 Council Member Bob Dubey, Place 3 Council Member Janet DePuy and Place 5 Council Member Ken Hutchenrider were each uncontested in their re-election bids. Jennifer Justice was also uncontested in the race for outgoing Council Member Mark Solomon's Place 2 seat.
