Ballot Box

Five candidates have lined up to run for two places on the Flower Mound Town Council.

Friday marked the filing period deadline for the May 4 election. Early voting runs from April 22-30.

In Place 1, Laile Neal, Jim Pierson and Laura Dillon will face each other for the seat vacated by Jason Webb, who opted not to seek re-election.

Neal, an instructor pilot, and Dillon, an insurance consultant, serve on the Planning and Zoning Commission. Pierson is retired.

Dillon had originally filed to run in Place 3, but Friday she withdrew her name for that spot and filed for Place 1.

In Place 3, Mike Wallace will face Ben Bumgarner. They are seeking to take over for Kevin Bryant, who has reached his term limit.

Wallace, a technology manager, served on the council from 2009 to 2011. He also served on P&Z for four years.

Bumgarner is self employed. He originally filed to run in Place 1. Friday, he switched to Place 3.

LISD Board of Trustees

After weeks of no challengers stepping up, LISD will have an election after all.

Friday, Lewisville resident Jacob Collier filed to run against incumbent Katherine Sells, also a Lewisville resident, for Place 4.

Sells, a community volunteer, is completing her first three-year term on the board. Collier is in the financial industry and owns a landscaping business.

Board President Angie Cox, who serves on Place 3, and Jenny Proznik, who serves on Place 5, will run unopposed.
