A Quick Update On The November 5th Election and December Runoff

UPDATE 12/14/2019:  The results of the Bellaire Runoff Election are in.  The new City Council members are Nathan Wesely for Position 4 and Jim Hotze for Position 6, joining Catherine Lewis on City Council in January, 2020.  Here’s the Agenda.

Newcomer candidate Nathan Wesely won the runoff for Council position 4 .  Newcomer candidate Jim Hotze defeated incumbent Council member David Montague for Position 6.  They will join Catherine Lewis, who defeated incumbent Trisha Pollard in the November election, at the first City Council meeting of 2020 on January 6.

Candidates Lewis, a retired PhD geologist, Wesely, an attorney who also holds an MBA and an engineering degree, and Hotze, a CPA and small business owner, turned the focus of their campaigns to flood mitigation and drainage, fiscal responsibility and City budgets, zoning and the preservation of Bellaire as a City of Homes.  That message seemed to resonate with Bellaire voters.
