Saturday, May 4 is Election Day, which will determine who the next mayor of Humble will be as well as who will take two seats with the Humble ISD school board of trustees. Early voting runs from Monday, April 22 to Tuesday, May 2. The hours are from 7 a.m.-7 p.m. daily except for Sunday, April 30; voting on that day is from 1-6 p.m.
In the City of Humble election, Mayor Merle Aaron is being challenged for his position by Humble resident Arliss Bentley. Aaron has held the position for four years and served on city council for 10 years prior to that. Bentley has served on the city’s Beautification Committee for more than 10 years.
Incumbent Charles Curry is running unopposed for Humble City Council Position 1 and Glenn Redmon is running unopposed for Position 2, currently held by long-time councilmember Ray Calfee, who is not seeking re-election.
As far as Humble ISD, four candidates will compete for the Position 2 seat being vacated by long-serving board member Keith Lapeze. Ryan Engolio is a Humble High School graduate and has lived in the district 14 years. Nikki Roux is a Fall Creek resident who has children in the district. Robert Scarfo has previously served on the board and has decided to run again because he has three grandchildren in the district. Janie Branham is a former teacher who has twins who attend an Humble ISD school.
CPA Colin Carney was appointed to Position 6 with the board after Heath Rushing departed the seat and is seeking election so that he can continue to serve the community. Hoping to unseat him is Lori Twomey, who has two children in the district.
Nancy Morrison has served in Position 7 for the last four years and will run unopposed.
Voting takes place at Humble City Hall, 114 W. Higgins.
