Sure to be a hotly outspoken political race, the five o'clock deadline to submit an application for the City Council election has passed and area voters will be excited to hear that three highly respected Forney resident's have filed candidate applications.
The voters should be thrilled to discover incumbent Council Member's Shaun Myers, Kevin Moon and David Johnson and Mayor Rick Wilson will all be challenged for their council seats.
The candidate's for the Forney City Council May 2019 General Election will be:
Incumbent - Mayor Rick Wilson vs. Place 5 Council Member Mary Penn
Incumbent - Place 2 Council Member Shaun Myers vs. Michael Lopez
Incumbent - Place 4 Council Member Kevin Moon vs. Ken Hill
Incumbent - Place 6 Council Member David Johnson vs. Reef Gullium
Unfortunately, the voter's of Forney will not be representing themselves at the polls during this election.
The Citizen's for Term Limits petitioner's were just short of obtaining the required number of signatures needed to get on the May 2019 ballot.
According to the Texas Secretary of State election's division, the Term Limits citizen's initiative should be eligible for a ballot position on the November 2019 ballot.
Watch for updates about this important citizen initiative on the Forney Citizen's for Term Limits Facebook page.
