In addition to the county, state, and national races to be decided Nov. 6, voters also are being asked to weigh in on some local contests.

Voters in the Floresville area perhaps will have the largest ballot, thanks to both the city and the Floresville Independent School District (ISD) moving their elections from May to November. This was in response to Senate Bill 100, passed by the state’s 82nd Legislature and signed into law in 2011 by Gov. Rick Perry. The law, which is in response to the federal MOVE (Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment) Act, is designed to improve voting access for those deployed overseas.

The filing deadline for places on the ballot was Monday, Aug. 20, at 5 p.m., which was after the Wilson County News’ press time. Information about additional candidates will be added to the online version of this article at wilsoncountynews.com, as it is received.

As of press time, the following candidates had filed:

Floresville city

•Mayor: Diana Garza, Tom Robles, Christina Jarzombek, and Johnnie Rene Gomez.

•Council, Place 1: James Miller and Jesse C. Flores.

•Council, Place 2: Incumbent Mario Morones is seeking a third, two-year term.

Floresville ISD

•Single-member Dist. 1: Incumbent Tom A. Ray faces a challenge from businessman William “Bill” R. Meuth Jr. and local pastor Dr. Joel Odom.

•Single-member Dist. 4: Incumbent Neysa Choate seeks another three-year term.

East Central ISD

•Single-member Dist. 3: Incumbent Randall Gearhart of Adkins faces a challenge from John Massengale of China Grove, who lists his profession as “self employed.”

•Single-member Dist. 4: Incumbent Victor Garza seeks another three-year term.

•Single-member Dist. 6: Incumbent Claudia V. Barrientos seeks another three-year term.

San Antonio River Authority

As of press time, no one had filed to fill a one-year unexpired term as one of Wilson County’s two representatives to the San Antonio River Authority board. Darrell Brownlow currently holds this seat.
