Voters choose school boards, city council members

GREENVILLE — Residents served by the Boles and Cumby Independent School Districts voted Tuesday for their boards of trustees, while voters in West Tawakoni cast ballots for their city council.

Five candidates — Robert Cruthird, Linda Pitts, Laura Sweeney, Gary Pitts and Jason Monroe — were vying for four, four-year terms on the Board ISD board. Monroe (48 votes), Sweeney (42 votes), Linda Pitts (36 votes), and Cruthird (33 votes) won seats on the board. Gary Pitts finished with 30 votes.

William Bacon was unopposed in seeking a two-year unexpired term on the board.

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

The top two vote getters in Hunt County were Tremor, who received 24 votes and Giles with 13 votes.

Jack Schultz and Calvin Travers were competing for the post of Mayor of West Tawakoni. Travers received 229 votes (58.72 percent), while Schultz received 161 votes (41.28 percent).

Pete Yoho and Laura Beckett were vying for the Place 2 seat on the West Tawakoni City Council. Beckett claimed 236 votes (61.94 percent) to Yoho’s 145 votes (38.06 percent)

Carol Solomon was unopposed in seeking the Place 4 spot on the council. Solomon was ordered removed from the council last month after a Hunt County jury found her guilty of one count of official misconduct.

The status of her removal, however, is awaiting the outcome of a pending court case.
