BREAKING: Incumbents remain on Silsbee city council seats

By Daniel Elizondo, Editor

Low voter turnout may have been the case for city and school elections this year, but the ones that cast ballots made it count.

Two City of Silsbee places were up for grabs in this year’s election with both incumbents keeping their respective seats.

District B place Chris Barnes defeated Bill Nunn after receiving 61 votes (73 percent) to Nunn’s 12 votes.

In an At-Large place, incumbent James Collins remained in his position with 187 votes (55 percent) to defeat Chris Smith, who received 144 votes (42 percent)

In Silsbee ISD elections, Place 1 incumbent Bill Conway won handily over Kent Irvin with 389 votes to Irvin’s 228 votes.

In the Place 2 position, newly elected Janis Holt also won big over Bill Huggins after receiving 468 votes to Huggins 135 votes.

In the City of Lumberton, longtime councilman Don Burnett was ousted by David Maniscalco in a close race.

Maniscalco pulled in 289 votes to Burnett’s 219 votes.

There will be more details in Wednesday’s edition of the Silsbee Bee.
