The city of Pearland will be holding a runoff election on June 8. The election will determine who holds Pearland City Council Position 1. The date of the runoff election was approved at a Pearland City Council special meeting on May 13.

“I am honored to have received the most votes in the general election. The support has been nothing short of amazing,” Isenberg said in a written statement. “I believe the only question before the voters in this runoff is ‘Who is the most qualified candidate?’ My service and experience clearly illustrate my qualifications and I ask for your vote.”
Orlando believes his education in finance makes him the most qualified candidate, he said in a written statement.
“The additional weeks campaigning will allow us to show voters how my professional experience solving tough financial problems, history working for our elected officials, and education in finance and government make me the best candidate for Pearland City Council,” Orlando said in a written statement. “I hope to have the opportunity to work towards solutions that strengthen our people, prosperity, and public places.”
