Lipan ISD races, city utility question loom

April 5, 2014

The last day to register to vote for the Saturday, May 10, election is Thursday.

City dwellers will decide whether Granbury should sell its electric utility system, and Lipan residents will determine the makeup of their school board.

Early voting will be from Monday, April 28, through Tuesday, May 6.

All early voting will take place at Annex 1, 1410 W. Pearl St., from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, except for May 5 and 6. On those days, the polls at Annex 1 will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

There is competition in two of the seats that will be on the ballot for the Lipan School Board.

In Place 3, incumbent Rhonda Millington faces Ellyn Grove. Ned Tipton, in Place 4, has three opponents: Shane Shockley, Tim Ross and Phillip Tarpley.

Todd Tuggle, who was appointed to fill a vacancy in the Place 2 seat, is unopposed on the ballot. So, too, is Place 5’s Walter Baldree.

On election day, Lipan voters will vote at Lipan Church of Christ, 119 N. Caddo St.

A runoff election for the Precinct 3 justice of the peace position will be held next month, but it won’t be until Tuesday, May 27. Early voting for that race will be May 19-23.

Darrell Grober and Kathy Gwinn are each hoping to replace longtime JP Judy Watson, who is retiring.
