UPDATE MAY 16: The candidates in the run-off election for City Council Place 5 are Dana Wilcott and James Weaver.
The May 6, 2023, General Election resulted in Places 1 and 4 being elected to the Hutto City Council. Place 5 now in a run-off election.
Peter Gordon won the race for Place 4 against Nicole Calderone and will serve his second term on the Council, per the term limits set in the City Charter. 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 will be officially canvassed, and Gordon and Thompson will be sworn into office.
Also at the May 16 meeting, the City Council will vote 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 has officially been completed, the two candidates in the run-off will be confirmed.
The run-off election is Saturday, June 10, from 7 am to 7 pm at the Williamson County Hutto Annex: 321 Ed Schmidt Blvd, Hutto, TX 78634. Early voting in the run-off election would be Tuesday, May 30, to Tuesday, June 6, at the same location.
The Place 5 elected City Council member is anticipated to be sworn into office at City Hall at 6 pm on Tuesday, June 20. (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
