The City usually holds an election on the 1st Saturday in May. Generally, on even years, three of the City’s 5 Council seats are up for election, while on odd years, the other two seats and the Mayor’s seat are up.
On March 1, 2019, the Glen Rose City Council cancelled the Regular Election scheduled for the election of municipal officers because the number of candidates for Mayor and for Council were equal to the number of seats up for election. Sometime shortly after the May 4, 2019 Uniform Election date, Pam Miller will be sworn in as Mayor and Johnny Martin and Rhonda Hawthorne will be sworn in as Council Members for the 2019-2021 Term.
The City, still, will be conducting a Special Election on May 4, 2019 concerning a ballot proposition allowing citizens to vote either “for” or “against” a measure eliminating the Glen Rose Economic Development Corporation 4B 1/2% Sales Tax and increasing the Municipal Sales Tax by 1/2% to 1 1/2%. If the proposition is approved, the total local sales tax rate will not change, but the way the money can be spent will change. Below is a link to a Fact Sheet which provides the wording of the ballot proposition and more details concerning this matter. The election will be held at City Hall at 201 NE Vernon Street. Early voting will also be conducted at City Hall.
