Six file for Devine ISD School Board, five file for City Council

Four Devine ISD School Board positions and three seats on the Devine City Council are up for grabs in the upcoming General Election scheduled for Saturday, May 7.
A referendum on whether the City should sell the Devine Golf Course will not be on the ballot in the municipal portion of the election (see separate story).
Devine ISD School Board
Four candidates are running for two at-large positions. Incumbents Chris Davis and Renee Frieda filed re-election, and are joined by David Gonzales and Brenda Burford.
District 1 representative Alixiana Buvinghausen and District 2 representative Carl Brown are both unopposed in their re-election bids.
Devine City Council
District 4 incumbent Kathy Lawler did not file re-election, meaning voters of that district will choose a new representative. Cassandra Maldonado, Woodrow Wilburn, and Josh Ritchey are running for the position.
District 1 Councilman Rufino “Flipper” Vega and District 3 Councilman David Espinosa both filed to retain their seats and are unopposed.
The municipal election will be the first under the new municipal voting districts adopted by Council in December 2021 (see “Devine City Council adopts redistricting plan” in the January 5, 2022 edition of The Devine News).
Early voting begins on April 25 and ends May 3. Voting will be held at City Hall, located at 303 S. Teel Dr. in Devine.
