Graphic showing candidates who have officially announced or filed for their candidacy.

Kerrville’s City Council consists of five members who are elected “at large.” That means that anyone who lives inside the city limits (for at least one year) can run for any place on the council, including Mayor, or Place 1, Place 2, Place 3, or Place 4. There are no parties, no districts, no primaries, and no run-offs.

Each member serves a two-year term. Every year at least two of the five seats are up for election. In 2018, we will elect a Mayor and Places 3 and 4. The election will be held in May 2018.


 

Place 3

Place 3 on the City Council is currently held by Mrs. Mary Ellen Summerlin. She was appointed to fill out the term following the death of the previous officeholder, Gary Stork. Mrs. Summerlin has indicated that she will probably not run for election in May 2018. No other candidates have filed for this seat as of January 19.

Place 4

Place 4 on the City Council is currently held by Mr. Warren Ferguson. He was appointed to fill out the term following the resignation of the previous officeholder, Gene Allen. Mr. Ferguson has indicated that he will not run for election in May 2018.
