League City City Council Election Update

The City Council election season is upon us and it promises to be an active one. The elections are Saturday, May 13th.

Several incumbents have signed up and will try and battle the anti-incumbent sentiment that has befallen incumbents since Channel 16 started airing.

The spending of taxpayer money on Big League Dreams (which has yet to turn a profit) and the Butler Longhorn Museum (which has yet to open its doors) are sure to be big issues in the race, as well as a solution to the wastewater capacity crisis caused by League City’s explosive growth.

Filing ends Monday for the City Council and CCISD elections, but here is how the races are shaping up so far.

Position 3

Incumbent City Councilman Tommy Cones faces a challenge from newcomers Mike Lee and Enrique de Leon. There was talk about Fred Forshey filing as well, but so far that has yet to happen.

**Disclosure ** - Mike Lee is a Markum Group client and his website is at: , logon on and take his survey about what the city should do with the Butler Longhorn Museum project (1.5 Million dollars and counting)

Position 4

Incumbent City Council woman Katie Benoit faces a challenge from local attorney and P & Z member Chris Samuelson.

Position 5

Councilman Rusty Tidwell is not running for his position and two of the candidates from last year will battle it out again. Phyllis Wilson Sanborn who lost in a runoff to Councilman Tad Nelson last year, will face Tim Paulissen who also ran last year against Nelson, but did not make the runoff.

**Disclosure** - Phyllis Wilson Sanborn is a Markum Group client and her website is at: .

And to everyone who has e-mailed me; yes she is a Republican. She says she got swept up last year and is running an independent campaign this year. She says she is running to keep children first in the city’s plans and decisions. If you have any questions, I would invite you to e-mail her or call her and ask her yourself.


In a side note, I saw former Councilman Keith Dill today at lunch and had a very informative discussion with him, but no decision has been made.
