Top results from May 6 election include one Dallas city council runoff
In the top results from an election on May 6 with multiple races around Dallas-Fort Worth, most incumbents kept their seats, but one Dallas City Council seat will have to be decided in a run-off election.
Mayors who were relected include Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson, Fort Worth Mayor Mattie Parker, and Arlington Mayor Jim Ross.
Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney kept his seat with 55 percent of the vote, fending off challenger and former Frisco Fire Chief Mark Piland, who earned 42 percent.
In Richardson, City Council member Janet Dubey won the race to replace outgoing mayor Paul Voelker by 53 percent, beating fellow City Council member Bob Dubey's 46 percent.
Two Dallas City Council representatives - Adam McGough and Casey Thomas - reached the end of their term limit, leaving those districts open to a new council member. McGough's seat in District 10 has a new winner, but no candidates for Thomas' seat in District 3 earned 50 percent of the vote, requiring a run-off in June.
In Dallas County, voter turnout was 8.84 percent or 114,197 ballots cast.
Dallas City Council incumbents
Incumbents were all re-elected including Chad West in Oak Cliff, and Jesse Moreno in a newly redrawn District 2 that encompasses Deep Ellum, Love Field, and Casa View.
Carolyn King Arnold somehow got re-elected in District 4, Jaime Resendez was re-elected in District 5, as was Omar Narvaez in District 6 West Dallas, Adam Bazaldua in District 7 east/southeast Dallas, Tennel Atkins in District 8 far southeast Dallas, Paula Blackmon in District 9 northeast Dallas/Lakewood, Jaynie Schultz in District 11, Gay Donnell Willis in District 13 northwest Dallas, and Paul Ridley in District 14 Oak Lawn, Uptown, and Downtown. Cara Mendehlson in far North Dallas District 12 was unopposed.
Dallas City Council non-incumbents
District 3 in Southwest Dallas, a seat vacated by Casey Thomas, drew five candidates but none earned more than 50 percent, so there'll be a run-off on June 10 between the two top vote getters: Zarin Gracey, director of the Office of Business Diversity for city of Dallas, who got 1394 votes, or 46 percent; and Joe Tave, radio host and return candidate, who came in second with 777 votes.
Three other candidates - John Sims with 424 votes, Denise Benavides with 317 votes, and August Doyle with 104 votes - split the remainder.
District 10 in Northeast Dallas, Lake Highlands, a vacant seat left by Adam McGough, was won by Katherine Stewart, former director of Uptown Dallas, Inc. who earned 69 percent of voters, besting three other candidates who included Brian Hasenbauer, one-time City of Dallas Community Development Commissioner.
