The Lake Travis-Westlake area filing deadline for the Nov. 6 general elections was Monday. There will be five city council candidates running for two openings within the city of Lakeway.
The City of Rollingwood canceled its general election because there are no opposed races, according to City Secretary Robyn Ryan.
Alderwoman Sara Hutson and Alderman Gavin Massingill are running unopposed. Mayor Roxanne McKee will not seek reelection, leaving lone mayoral applicant and current Rollingwood City Alderman Michael Dyson as next in line for the job, Ryan said.
Since Dyson’s term runs for another year, his council seat will be vacant until the City Council appoints someone else at a date to be determined following the Nov. 6 swearing in of Hudson, Dyson and Massingill, Ryan said.
A Nov. 6 Rollingwood special election to replace Alderman Bobby Dillard’s vacant seat could be canceled as well if no one applies to run against Amy Patillo, who was appointed to fill Dillard’s seat until November following his May resignation, Ryan said. Patillo is currently running unopposed.
The filing deadline for the Rollingwood special election is 5 p.m. Thursday.
There are two seats open in the Lakeway election, including one vacancy that resulted from Jean Hennagin’s June 28 resignation from the Lakeway City Council. Council Member Dwight Haley’s seat is also open.
The following five candidates are running for two open “at large” seats on the Lakeway City Council: Glenda Foreman Engert, Betty Haley, Laurie Higginbotham, Louis Mastrangelo and Wendi Severance. Because the council is "at large," the top two vote-getters will take the two open spots.
Eanes ISD and Lake Travis ISD, along with the cities of Westlake Hills and Bee Cave had their joint and general elections in May.
