Dates For Runoff Elections
GLENN HEIGHTS – Alisha Brown was sworn in earlier this week in Glenn Heights for the unexpired Place 4 seat left open earlier this year.

But even as Brown was sworn in to take that open seat, the city is already gearing up for a second special election to replace councilmember Jeremy Woods, Place 3. Woods recently moved out of district due to issues with local area schools.
