Four out of six seats on the Bee Cave City Council come up for election this year. The mayor, two tow year terms and one one year term are up for voting.
We have confirmed that the following have taken action:
- Incumbent Mayor Caroline Murphy has confirmed she is running
- Incumbent Mayor Pro Tem Steve Braasch has confirmed he is stepping down
- Incumbent Bill Goodwin has confirmed he will stand
- Incumbent Zelda Auslander has confirmed she is running but is undecided on what term
- Former member jack McCool has collected a packet but has not confirmed he is standing
to connect the trails between the high school and the park. He has been working on it for a year or more.
The keyword is 'elect'. The definition of elect is to choose someone to hold public office or some other position by voting. There are two candidates that have not run a campaign to get elected in years. I believe maybe even a decade. I believe this puts any official out of touch with the public they represent. The elections are canceled when all are un-opposed. I see a lot of complaining, but few that are willing to step up to the plate and run a campaign. If we are truly that unsatisfied with the people sitting there 'elected' or not, then surely every position will be contested this election.
