No council election needed in Castroville this year

By William Hoover
Anvil Herald Correspondent

Castroville City Secretary Debra Howe on Monday, March 3, said city council will soon act to cancel the May 10 General Elections for Council Districts 3, 4 and 5, as no challengers filed to contest the incumbents by the deadline.

The District 3, 4 and 5 council seats are respectively occupied by incumbent council members Jeff Gardner, Eric Cherry and Victor Ortiz, Jr. The terms of office for the council seats are two years each.

“We are not having an election,” said Howe. “Friday, Feb. 28, at 5 p.m. was the deadline. All of the incumbents filed for another term. No one else filed.”

It has been seven years since the city has had to hold a council election.

The last contested council election was in 2007, when District 1 Councilman Sammy Tschirhart, District 2 Councilwoman Kyle McVay and Mayor Bob Lee were first elected to their current seats.
