The cities of Cedar Hill, DeSoto and Midlothian had runoff elections for City Council while Red Oak ISD voters had a runoff for school board. Unofficial election results showed: Maranda Auzenne won in Cedar Hill, Pierette Parker in DeSoto, Allen Moorman in Midlothian and Sean Kelly in ROISD.
Cedar Hill councilwoman elect Maranda Auzenne shared on Facebook, “When the campaign started, I wanted to have a vision for what success would look like. As a human and a competitive person, I had to really think about this. Ultimately, the vision was to share how I can help our city to flourish, to continue to listen and to connect with people, to not shy away from difficult things and to proceed with integrity no matter what. This vision resonated and I am thankful to be councilwoman-elect!
I wanted to thank everyone who had a hand in helping during this campaign. From my neighbors, family and friends to the volunteer canvassers and volunteer poll workers, everyone was committed to the vision and relentless in embodying it themselves. There are so many to thank that I can’t possibly list everyone.
However, I must thank Cliff Shaw, who has served our city spectacularly for over 20 years. I have deep respect and admiration for him and his support was strong, unapologetic and encouraging and it span from the beginning of the general election to the very last day of the run-off.” *This is part of her comments, you can read her entire statement on Facebook.

This town and school district have always been a huge part of what I am. It has been humbling to have such strong supporters who many have now become friends. I am ready to serve our community in a new capacity. I’m ready to listen to staff, students, and parents and continue to move ROISD in a positive direction. I also thank my family and friends for support throughout the campaign. Once a Hawk, always a Hawk.”
