2014 City Council Candidates

*Shirley Roberts
City Council, Place 5 *Greg Noschese
*Incumbent

The annual municipal election is scheduled for Saturday, May 10, 2014, to elect Councilmembers for Places 3, 4 and 5.

The City contracts with the Dallas County Elections Department to conduct joint elections along with other entities. Participating in joint elections enables the City to reduce election expenses and is more convenient for voters. Voters can go to one location and vote on all candidates/issues that are common to the precinct in which they live. In other words, voters are able to vote for municipal candidates and school board trustees, if applicable, at the same location.

An election is held each year on the second Saturday in May to elect Councilmembers. In even-numbered years, an election is held to fill Places 3, 4 and 5; in odd-numbered years, the Mayor and Places 1, 2 and 6 are elected. The Mayor and Places 5 and 6 are considered at-large positions. Councilmembers elected to fill Places 1, 2, 3 and 4 are required to live in their respective districts; however, all places are voted into office by the entire City electorate and serve for two-year terms.

The current Mayor and City Council are as follows:

Mayor John Monaco
City Council, Place 1 Bill Porter
City Council, Place 2 Al Forsythe
City Council, Place 3 Stan Pickett
City Council, Place 4 Shirley Roberts
City Council, Place 5 Greg Noschese
City Council, Place 6 Dennis Tarpley
