Early voting to start Monday, April 23 for City Council, school bond elections

Early voting will start on Monday, April 23 for local City Council positions and the Northside school bond.

Voters in Grey Forest will decide on two Council member positions and the Mayor. Susan Darst and Jennifer Nottingham, incumbents, face Lorna Main and Irene Scharf. Holly Holleway, current Council member is facing one of her peers, Phil Howard for Mayor.

There is only one contested race in Helotes. Ed Villanueva, the incumbent, faces challenger Jim Meadows.

In Leon Valley Mayor Chris Riley is being challenged by Marianna Sanchez. Marianna Sanchez ran for office during last year’s council elections.

The incumbent for Place 2 did not run for re-election so two newcomers will compete for the position, Byron J. Woodworth, and Catherine R. Rodriquez.

Incumbent Benny Martinez, Place 4 will face challengers Tom Garza and Oscar Valdez.

Residents in Northside ISD will consider an $848.9 million bond issue.

The majority of the monies requested (65 percent) would go to improve existing schools, although there are four new schools in the proposal including the next new high school. More than half of NISD’s schools are over 25 years old, the oldest nearly 70 years old.

The Citizens’ Bond Committee comprised of hundreds of parents, senior citizens, students, business representatives, taxpayers, teachers, and other staff met for seven weeks in the fall to discuss the needs of a growing district as well as initiatives to upgrade NISD’s aging schools. The Committee endorsed the recommendation to call for an election.

In addition to addressing aging schools, other highlights of the bond include building bullet-resistant security lobbies at 44 elementary schools, adding and improving campus technology, replacing air conditioning and heating infrastructure, providing shade structures on all elementary campus playgrounds, and the addition of a new magnet school program on the Marshall High School campus.

Early voting will begin on April 23 and end May 1. The general election will be held on May 5.

Polls open at 8am until 6pm on Monday through Thursday. Polls close on Friday and reopen on Saturday, April 28 from 8am to 6pm.   Monday, April 30 through Tuesday, May 1 voters may vote from 8am until 8pm.
