Texoman's Head to The Voting Polls

Posted:

SHERMAN, TX--Several Texoman's headed to the polls to vote on Tuesday. Texoman's voted to elect 2 new city council members and on a number of constitutional amendments.

Reginal Wright has lived in Sherman most of his life and says he supports his city and votes as much as he can.

"I guess one thing that brought me out today was to be sure and vote for the water issues and I voted for the two council members," said Wright.

There were about 9 different constitutional amendments on Tuesday's ballot.

The propositions ranged from improving the state's water to providing a tax exemption on homes for disabled vets.

"I like what they're doing for the country so I'm supporting them all the way," said Wright.

As a local veteran, Saint Torres says he made sure to vote to help other local veterans.

"Houses that are donated to spouses of K.I.A's or disabled vets, to where it makes them tax exempt also," said Torres.

Also on the ballot is an option to elect a new city council member for district 1 and 3. Tom Watt is running for council member for district 3.
 

He's a retired Sherman police chief and says he knows firsthand about city issues.

"I have a lot of knowledge on the problems that our community faces I think that would be a benefit for my colleagues on the council if I was elected," said Watt.

Jim Travis is also running for council member for district three and says if elected, he would work on brining more job opportunities to the community.

"Not only to assist our current city leaders, but also to help the city create new jobs," said Travis

Early voting began on October 21st and ended on November 1st.
