election results: bartonville, double oak, flower mound, highland village, lewisville

Incumbents Carla Anderson and James Ashburn were re-elected, and newcomer Bill Reaves joins the Town Council. Bartonville residents also approved beer and wine sales in the town by a handy margin.

Double Oak
In a heated race that centered on a tax rise, Councilwoman Pamela King defeated Councilman Tracy Scott Miller to become the town's next mayor. Mike Donnelly and Jerry Lamel join the Town Council, defeating Chuck Bimmerle and incumbent Tom Pidcock.

Flower Mound
Flower Mound residents took to the polls to re-elect their leaders: Joel Lindsey, Tim Trotter and Jeff Tasker all return after soaring victories to the Town Council, defeating feisty opponents Michelle Pacifico and Jack Stufflebam that engaged a campaign around the current council's alleged unfriendliness toward business development in the town. Voters also approved a host of charter amendments.

Highland Village
Uncontested incumbents Austin Adams and Brian Fiorenza were re-elected to the council, but after an upset victory by Jon Calvin in Place 7, they will not be joined by their preferred candidate, Highland Village Unite-endorsed Pete Silva.

Voters will have to trek to the polls again, as a heavily-contested race will now lead to a runoff between the two candidates that received the most votes: Lathan Watts and Ron Aljoe.
