Local elections determine future

Crosby water board decided

Crosby Municiple Utility District held a Director’s Election on a “vote for three” ballot. Robert F. Fivecoat got 32 votes, William Wilkinson 35 votes, Velma Ellison 25 votes and Eddie Foster 38.

Wow, $10,000 for an election where less than 50 voted and nothing changed.

“Being the newest on the board, I very much appreciate the support of my neighbors and friends.” said Foster.

Crosby MUD could have had over 1,400 vote in the posted and published election that would decide decision makers for growth potential and attraction of new retail businesses to Crosby.

Woods Trustee for Highlands

Riding a wave of popularity that is partially charisma and partly heritage but mostly hard work, Jessica Woods was elected to the Board of Trustees of Goose Creek Consolidated ISD for a second term.

“I am honored to serve the district, its students and families for a second term on the GCCISD school board. Thank you for supporting education in our communities. I look forward to working with the board and the district on many projects approved in the bond election. I am committed to being a good steward of taxpayer resources with the goal of providing the best possible education our district can achieve,” Woods said, “Community involvement in planning and oversight committees is vital and I am confident that together, we will achieve great things.”

The unofficial vote was 213 for Woods to 98 for Peter Adams, a senior systems engineer.

District 6 voted for Tifany Upshaw Guy, a Counselor from Barbers Hill, 224 votes. Former Trustee Jimmy Smith got 120 votes and Jeff Hawkins 129, unofficially.

District 7 elected a realtor over a former educator. Shae Cottar got an unofficial 98 to 81 for Amaro Martinez.
