Voters in La Salle County will have a final chance on Saturday, June 12, to choose a school district trustee, the race for Place 4 on the board being decided in a run-off election.
The school district election on May 1 for the only contested seat on the board of trustees included three candidates, with none taking more than 50 percent of the vote in the final tally.
Candidates Thomas J. Childers, Ramon “Monchi” Charo and Alfredo Zamora Jr. were vying for election to the seat vacated this year by Trustee Scott Reese, who has chosen not to seek a new term at the table.
Results from the May 1 election showed Charo with 300 votes at 43.9 percent of the electorate, Childers with 283 votes at 41.5 percent, and Zamora with 99 votes at 14.5 percent. Voter turnout was pegged at 15.9 percent, with 686 voters out of a registered 4,305 in Cotulla ISD casting ballots.
Charo and Childers will face each other in the June 12 run-off.
Early voting is possible at the Cotulla ISD administration office on Main Street, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, June 1-4, and Monday and Tuesday, June 7 and 8.
On election day, polling stations will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 12, at Cotulla ISD administration office, the Community Center on Nopal Street in Encinal, and at Fowlerton Baptist Church.
Voting by mail is also possible in the CISD run-off. Applications for ballots by mail must be received by elections clerk Jeanette Ramirez, CISD Administration, 310 North Main, Cotulla, no later than the close of business on Tuesday, June 1.
The sole other candidate on the election ballot this year was Trustee Kim Hoff, uncontested in her bid for a new term in Place 1. She has since taken her oath of office and resumed her seat at the table.
