La Marque ISD Board of Trustees

Friday, May 27, 2011

The La Marque Independent School District Board of Trustees, in a special meeting on Thursday, called a special runoff election for June 25 to break a tie vote for the board's District 7 seat.

The order came after a re-canvassing of the votes in the race between incumbent Dr. Bill Spillar and challenger Davey Jones.

An automatic recount was held on Thursday morning due to both candidates receiving 122 votes in the May 14 election. No change came as a result of the recount, leaving no winner in the race.

Mail in and provisional ballots also failed to break the stalemate.
