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. 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 1

Place 1 on the City Council is currently held by Mr. Vincent Voelkel. He was elected in May 2017, defeating incumbent Stephen Fine. Place 1 will be up for election again in May 2019.

Place 2

Place 2 on the City Council is currently held by Mr. George Baroody. He was elected in May 2017, running unopposed. Place 2 will be up for election again in May 2019.

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. Place 3 will be up for election again in May 2018.
