Candidates file in Rio Vista city, school elections


All three places up for election this May on the Rio Vista City Council are contested after last-minute filings by candidates.

Rio Vista City Secretary Brenda Marbut said this week that two of the seven candidates vying for seats on the council filed to run on Thursday, Feb. 28, but that “the others all came in on Friday [March 1, the final day to file].”

In the race for mayor of Rio Vista, Clint Martin is challenging incumbent Mayor William Keith Hutchison.

Place 1 incumbent Georgia Jones faces challenger Adriana Mock. In Place 2, incumbent Ruth Hardin has drawn two challengers, Brenda Hall and Steven McClanahan.

Early voting for city council elections is from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, April 29 through May 7, at Rio Vista City Hall and Civic Center, 201 Texas 174. 

As mandated by the state, the city has scheduled two days with early voting polls open for 12 hours. Those days are April 30 and May 7, from 8 a.m to 8 p.m.


Rio Vista ISD elections

Two of the seven seats on the Rio Vista ISD board of trustees — all of which are at-large seats — are up for election in May, but only one of the two incumbents has filed for re-election, said Pam Gallagher, business office specialist for the district.

The three candidates vying for the two board seats are incumbent Richard Perrett, former board member Jacky Mears and Richard Eason.

Incumbent Joe Gilbert did not file for re-election.

Early voting in the school district races will be held from 8 a.m to 4 p.m. April 29 through May 7 at the Rio Vista ISD Administration Building, 100 E. Capps St.

Voting on Election Day, May 11, for city council and school board races will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the city hall and civic center.
