When it comes to elections in city offices and the Carroll ISD School Board, it seems it will be an uneventful season in Southlake. Three Southlake City Council members have terms expiring in May 2016, and they face no challengers. Chad M. Patton, Randy Williamson and John R. Huffman filed for Place 3, 4 and 5, respectively.
Patton is a newcomer to City Council. Williamson, who is also Mayor Pro Tem, was elected to City Council in 2013. Huffman was elected in 2015.
Southlake’s City Council is comprised of the mayor and six council members elected for terms of three years. No individual is permitted to serve as mayor or City Council member for more than two successive elected terms.
On May 7, 2016, Places 3, 4 and 5 will be elected. Places 1 and 6 will be elected May 6, 2017, and the mayor and Place 2 will be elected May 5, 2018.

On the school side of elections, the 2016 General Election will take place May 7, 2016. Seven trustees serve three-year terms on Carroll ISD’s School Board. Michelle Moore, Matt Kormann and Christopher Archer ran unopposed for Place 1, 6 and 7, respectively.
Moore was appointed to the Board last July following the resignation of Trustee Craig Rothmeier. Kormann, who serves as Secretary, was elected to the Board in 2013. Archer, President of the CISD School Board, was also elected in 2013.
Trustees will be administered the oath of office at the May 16, 2016 School Board meeting. Click here for more information on CISD’s upcoming trustee election.
