In the Nov. 2 election, Cibolo had 12 City Charter Propositions and a race for City Council District 4.

For the City Council race, Katie Cunningham took around 78% of the votes, putting her ahead of opponent Donetta Roberts.

Cunningham said she was thrilled with the results and looks forward to serving the city of Cibolo.

“I have been an active volunteer on different committees,” Cunningham said. “It is really great to have this opportunity to serve in a council capacity.”

Propositions 3 and 9 were voted against, meaning that the mayor, City Council and municipal judge positions will remain at two 3-year term limits.



With the approval of Proposition 2, the City of Cibolo will see a change to the City Council makeup as it shifts from seven district seats to four district seats and three at-large seats.

With the passing of Proposition 4, City Council members are to receive $100 per month of service and the Mayor would receive $150 per month.
