Final results are in for the May 1 election in Williamson County, with 27 of 27 polling places reporting. The majority of propositions on the ballot passed, while some incumbents in both school board and city council races were defeated.

Here are some of the highlights.

Bond Elections

Georgetown residents were decidedly in favor of a $90 million bond for road and transportation projects. Construction on those projects will begin in the fall.

Voters in both Liberty Hill Independent School District and Jarrell Independent School District approved the districts' bond packages. Liberty Hill ISD's bond totals nearly $500 million. Jarrell ISD asked for $113 million.

The bonds will cover the cost of expansion in the districts as enrollment goes up.

City Council Elections

Jim Penniman-Morin beat Dorian Chavez for Place 1 in Cedar Park. Claudia Chavez lost to incumbent Anne Duffy for Place 3. And Kevin Harris beat Collin Klein for Place 5.

Incumbent Georgetown City Council Member Kevin Pitts beat Jason Righteous Norwood for the District 5 seat, while Amanda Parr beat incumbent Mary Calixtro for District 1.

Incumbent Leander Mayor Troy Hill lost his reelection bid in a tight race with Christine Sederquist. Mike Sanders is headed to a runoff with Esmeralda Traube for Place 2. Both beat incumbent Annette Sponseller. Donnie Mahan is also headed to a runoff with Nacole Thompson for the Place 4 seat. And Becki Ross narrowly beat incumbent Marci Cannon for Place 6.

There will also be a runoff in Hutto for Place 5 on City Council between Krystal Kinsey and Nicole Calderone. Dan Thornton was reelected to his Place 2 seat beating Rick Hudson and Jimmy Pierce.
