Corsicana — The deadline to file for the upcoming May 11 municipal and school board elections was 5 p.m. Friday, and there were no challengers to file for the Corsicana City Council, Navarro College Board of Trustees or the Corsicana Independent School District.
The City of Corsicana will be able to cancel its spring election, since only the incumbents filed for reelection.
As of the deadline Friday afternoon, only Municipal Judge Mike Russell, Mayor Chuck McClanahan, and council members John McClung and Don Denbow had filed for the city election.
Lacking competition, the city can cancel the election, saving some money.
In the Corsicana ISD, the incumbents Terry Seth, Scott Watkins and Fr. Ed Monk filed, allowing for cancellation of that election, also.
However, CISD will still have an election for the $54 million bond package that’s been proposed for May 11.
Navarro College will also be able to cancel its uncontested election. The incumbents, Faith Holt, James Price and Todd McGraw, were the only filers.
A complete round-up of other school districts and cities will be in the Tuesday edition of the Corsicana Daily Sun.
