Election day for Galena Park and Jacinto City will be this Saturday, May 10. Locations to vote are detailed later in this article.

Jacinto City will elect three city council members, with newcomers challenging incumbents in all three seats. These are: Position #1 Parks & Recreation, incumbent Jimmy Rivas faces Diego Lopez; Position #2 Finance & City Hall incumbent Gregg Robinson faces challenger LaGloria Sephus; and Position #3 Police & Fire incumbent Allen Lee faces Raymond Morlock.

In Galena Park, the mayor’s seat and all the council positions are to be elected. To help the voters make a decision, the North Channel STAR and the GP-JC Rotary Club held a Candidates’ Forum last Friday night, April 25th.

Candidates were given an opportunity to present their qualifications and their ideas for their office, and then answer questions from a panel and the public. About 100 people were in the audience for this event, held at Baggett Community Center.
