Conroe, June 11 – Conroe businessman Harry Hardman easily won the election for Place 3 of the Conroe City Council in the June 11 runoff. It was a landslide.
Hardman received 1462 votes to John Hernandez’s 934, or 61.02% to 38.98%. Hardman has promised he will be a conservative on the Conroe City Council and will fight for lower water bills for Conroe residents as well.
Hardman had come in first place amongst a five person field in the May 7 election but no candidate received a majority of the votes cast. Hardman did, however, garner substantially more votes on May 7 than did any of his opponents.
Hardman ran on a conservative slate along with City Councilman Howard Wood and City Councilwoman Marsha Porter. Therefore, the three of them together would appear to have a working majority who could bring lower taxes and smaller government to the Conroe City Hall, if they continue to espouse the views on which they ran as candidates.
In the runoff for Conroe Municipal Judge, William Waggoner received 1326 votes to 1035 for Meloney Turner, or 56.16% to 43.84%.
