May elections taking shape


ORANGE — City of Vidor

Despite a lot of change in councilmen over the past few years, filing for Vidor city council seats is moving along a little slower this year.

Through Friday only Gary Herrera, Ward 5, has filed for re-election. Neither Jay Odom, Ward 2, nor Jason Woodard, Ward 3, have field at this time and no new candidates have come forward.

Potential candidates may call Vicki Watson, city secretary, at 409-769-5473 for more information.

City of Rose City

Rose City is expected to have some type of election this May with the amount of terms expiring and vacancies.

Three at-large seats are open for election this year as terms expire for Dorothy Barras, David Reese and Jayme McGlothin.

Also, a special election will be held for the vacated Mayor position, previously held by David Bush and currently held by appointee Bonnie Stephenson, and the vacated council seat previously held by Chad Landry.

No filings have been reported as of Friday by incumbents or new candidates. Interested citizens may call the city secretary, Tanya Veazy, at 409-769-6809.

City of Pine Forest

In the City of Pine Forest, located just north of Vidor, all three incumbent councilmembers have filed for re-election. This include Donald Lemp, Place 2; Kevin Singleton, Place 3, and John Wesley Brown, Place 4. No other filings have been reported.

Call the city secretary at 409-786-4100 for more information.

West Orange-Cove CISD

The West Orange-Cove Consolidated Independent School District has two seats available for filing on the Board of Trustees this year, and, thus far, only one candidate is registered.

Newcomer Ruth H. Hancock has filed for a place on the May 10 ballot in hopes of securing one of the two at-large positions. Neither incumbent, Tony Dallas or Andrew Hayes, has filed for re-election at this time.

Interested residents of the school district may contact Bonnie Tegge at 409-882-5500 for more information.
