The May 6, 2023 General Election resulted in Places 1 and 4 being elected to the Hutto City Council. A run-off election for Place 5 is now complete.
Peter Gordon won the race for Place 4 against Nicole Calderone and will serve his second term on the Council. Brian Thompson will replace incumbent Robin Sutton in Place 1. During a public meeting at 6 pm on Tuesday, May 16 at City Hall, the election results were officially canvassed, and Gordon and Thompson were sworn into office.
Also at the May 16 meeting, the City Council voted on ordering a run-off election for Place 5. Hutto City Charter requires a candidate to earn “greater than one-half of the total number of valid ballots cast” to win the election outright, otherwise a run-off election will be held between the two highest vote-getters. No candidate earned more than 50% of the votes for Place 5 in the General Election among candidates Dana Wilcott, Jim Weaver and Marcus Coleman. On May 16 when the canvass was officially completed, the two candidates in the run-off were confirmed as Wilcott and Weaver.
Canvassing for the run-off election is anticipated to take place at City Hall at 6 pm on Tuesday, June 20. The elected City Council member will then be sworn into office. The elected candidate's first regular City Council meeting will take place on Thursday, July 6. (Place 5 is currently held by Krystal Kinsey, who resigned and is serving in a holdover capacity.)
To recap the key dates:
- May 16: Thompson and Gordon sworn into office in Places 1 and 4; opponent in Place 5 determined by official canvass
- May 30 to June 6: Place 5 run-off early voting
- June 10: Place 5 run-off election day
- June 20: Place 5 swearing in
