Incumbents fill Nocona ballots, city council only May race

As election filing came to an end on Feb. 15 only the City of Nocona will have an election on May 4, as the other two entities had all their incumbents file with no new names.
The City of Nocona, Nocona Independent School District and Nocona Hospital District are the only governmental entities in the county that have elections in May. The remainder of the other entities moved their elections to November in conjunction with the county.
However with the approval of the Tier 2 petition last Friday, the county will add an election for that issue on the May 4 ballot.
On the Nocona City Council Robert Fenoglio will run unopposed for mayor. There are two places open on the council with incumbents Tom Horn and Don Davis filing for re-election, along with Robert Dwayne Fuller.
City Secretary Revel Hardison said Ricky Roberts filed for the council race, but his petition was rejected when his voter registration verified he lives outside the city limits.
For the NISD board, place three filled by Greg Fuller and place four filled by Pat Keck will be on the ballot. Both incumbents have filed and the district is expected to cancel its election.
The hospital district also will cancel its election as all four incumbents filed for the four places on the board: Melissa Murphey, Chris Keck, Ken Koontz and Charlie Brown.
