Incumbent Republican Pct. 4 Tom Green County Commissioner Bill Ford is challenged by write-in candidate Gilbert Gallegos.
The San Angelo ISD has two bond proposals on the ballot. Proposition A is for $111 million and would provide for security improvements and new classrooms for elementary and middle schools. Proposition B would provide funding for a new 3,000 seat gymnasium at Central High School and a new field house facility at Lake View High School. A similar bond proposal failed by two votes in May.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott is also on the ballot. The first term Republican is challenged by Democrat Lupe Valdez, the former sheriff of Dallas County. Abbott leads by double digits and was in San Angelo last Wednesday.
