— Some voters in Hunt County are also heading to the polls this week to choose representatives on their city council or school boards.

Polls will be open between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Residents served by the Boles and Cumby Independent School Districts are choosing their boards of trustees, and voters in West Tawakoni are casting ballots for their city council.

Robert Cruthird, Linda Pitts, Laura Sweeney, Gary Pitts and Jason Monroe are vying for four, four-year terms on the Board ISD board. William Bacon is unopposed in seeking a two-year unexpired term on the board.

Four people are seeking two places on the Cumby Independent School District board of trustees. Angie Allen, Renee Seely, Tammy Giles and David Tremor are vying for the three-year terms.

Jack Schultz and Calvin Travers are competing for the post of Mayor of West Tawakoni, while Pete Yoho and Laura Beckett are in the race for Place 2 seat on the West Tawakoni City Council.

Carol Solomon’s name is listed as unopposed in seeking the Place 4 spot on the council. However, Solomon was removed from the council last month after a Hunt County jury found her guilty of one count of official misconduct. Although Solomon is not legally able to hold the office, it was too late to remove her name from the ballot.
