Seven candidates have filed for three positions on the Jersey Village City Council—including two council positions and the mayoral seat—that will be up for election May 1.
Two candidates each have filed to run in the mayoral race and the race for City Council Place 2, and three candidates have filed to run for City Council Place 3.
The candidates include the following.
Jersey Village Mayor
- Merrilee Rosene Beazley
- Bobby Warren
Jersey Village City Council Place 2
- Dell Humbert
- Kamal Khan
- Sheri Sheppard
Jersey Village City Council Place 3
- Ashley Brown
- Michelle Mitcham
No incumbents are running for re-election in any of the three races. Andrew Mitcham and Greg Holden, the current mayor and the Place 2 council member, respectively, are stepping down due to term limits. Bobby Warren, the current Place 3 council member, is stepping down to run in the mayoral election.
Council members and the mayor in Jersey Village serve two-year terms without compensation. A term limit is reached when council members serve three consecutive terms. City Council Places 1, 4 and 5 will be up for election in May 2022. Candidates in City Council races do not run under political parties.
The election takes place as the city moves toward executing a long-range flood control plan and prepares to break ground on a new City Hall building within a planned mixed-use center south of Hwy. 290.
This May, the city will also be seeking voter approval to redirect a portion of sales tax revenue into a new fire prevention district.
