CIBOLO — Embattled Mayor Stosh Boyle secured 50 percent of the vote to win a second term in spite of mounting legal troubles.
Political newcomers Glenda Henry and Kara Latimer finished second and third, respectively, in the Nov. 5 race for City Hall’s top spot.
Boyle faced major trouble when he was arrested this summer for not having mentioned a prior felony conviction when applying for the 2017 mayoral election.
He reportedly left that information out of his application for re-election, and was charged again.
Still, Boyle proved resilient and defiant. He even staved off a threat by council to vote him off.
However, growing public resentment toward a proposed toll road plan, among other issues, buoyed at least one challenger to victory over an incumbent.
Project manager Steven Quinn ousted Place 2 Councilman Verlin “Doug” Garrett with 56 percent of the vote.
Reggie Bone, who works in retail, ran alone for the Place 3 seat being vacated by Brian Byrd.
Place 7 Councilman Joel Hicks had no problem retaining his seat, receiving nearly 78 percent agains Glenn Weber Jr.
