Meadow City Council’s three open spots will be filled later this month by three new faces, following the results of Saturday’s election.
Of the six candidates for those spots - all at-large, rather than representative of districts - newcomer Everett McArthur received the largest number of votes with 91. C.J. Campos and Alan Bayer followed with 90 and 88, respectively.
"I want to congratulate everybody who ran and thank everybody who voted,” McArthur told the Brownfield News after results were announced about 8:45 p.m.
Incumbent James Smith was unseated after received 61 votes, the smallest number of the six candidates. Councilwoman M’Lisa Nieman garnered 86 votes, about two ballots shy of the amount needed to retain her spot.
Candidate Marty Quintanilla received 68 votes.
Councilmen Jerry Liles and Johnny Gregg and Mayor Natalie Howard will retain their seats and will not be up for re-election until next year. In addition to the two spots filled by incumbents, a third spot had been vacant the past several months since the resignation of Cat Perez.
McArthur, Campos and Bayer will be sworn in during the next council meeting, set for 7 a.m. Tuesday, May 21 at City Hall.
