Jacinto City incumbents return to Council
A close race for Mayor in Galena Park was the highlight of this year’s city elections, in both Galena Park and Jacinto City. As shown in the box to the right, Esmeralda Moya led a field of four candidates with 260 votes, but that was not enough to avoid a run-off for the position with Joseph Thibodeaux. The city will decide at their council meeting on May 20th when the run-off will be held, and where voting will take place.
In other races, incumbent Councilman Danny Simms was returned to office, and newcomers Lois Killough, and Mericela Serna won seats at the GP council table. Position #4 had 3 candidates, none of which had a majority, so that will result in a run-off between the top two candidates, Juan Flores, Jr. and Martha Flores. It was notable that Killough garnered the most votes of any candidate by far, with 394 cast in her favor.
