The next step is a recount and, if the result remain the same, there will be a second election for these two candidates. Yesterday, at the election site in Kennedale, there were paper ballots used by some voters and there is a possibility that between the casting of votes by machine and the use of paper ballots, there may have been a mistake made. At this time, it is unknown when the recount will take place.

In early voting prior to Saturday, Guerra led 254 to 234. Lee apparently made up the difference in same day voting on Saturday.?

The only other incumbent running Saturday was John Clark who secured a 3 year term on the Kennedale ISD Board of Trustees over newcomer Tamiko Sargent, 760 to 481 or 62% of the vote total.

In the two remaining city council races, Josh Altom won in a fairly close race over Jeff Neverez with 52% of the vote while Chad Wandel won by a large margin over Idin Deijavan, earning 63% of the vote.?

propositions pass easily …?

The three propositions on the ballot for the City of Kennedale passed overwhelming. The passage of the three propositions will have little impact on citizens of Kennedale. The first two updated language in the City Charter while the third required that a greater percentage, in this case 30% of the voters in the last regular election or a minimum number of 500 voters be needed to petition for an initiative, referendum and recall. This last proposition came about after the failed recall of Jan Joplin and Sandra Lee last year. It was thought that the number needed before was too small or to easily obtained.

Results? are considered unofficial until approved by the respective governing bodies, the Kennedale City Council and the Kennedale Board of Trustees.
