First up, and it was national news, Julian Castro was re-elected in San Antonio. No surprise here.
In Austin, two of the four school bonds passed. This was a shocker to me, as I cannot remember the last time the denizens of Austin have declined to invest in education. I’ll discuss this a little more at a later date.
Pearland and West University Place were the two municipalities in this area which held elections yesterday. I know Bob Fry was re-elected as Mayor of the later, but I do not know many specifics for the other elections in the genral area.
Also, the Lone Star bond issue failed.
