Muir wins Mayor’s race and Bilyeu is re-elected

Thomas Muir won his eighth election to be Sanger Mayor on Saturday, May 4.  He tallied 150 votes to Jeffrey W. Jaracke’s 79, (229) total votes.  Jaracke is a retired fireman and this was he second time to vy for Mayor.  In 2022, Muir won 487-246 (727) total votes.  In 2022 there was more of a turnout because of the Sanger ISD bond, which accumulated 1,656 votes.  Citizens have to live in the city limits to vote for council or mayor, which is why it was about half the total of the school bond turnout.

“Thank you to all the Sanger residents that came out and voted during the recent city election.  Sanger is a special place -- where your elected officials volunteer their time on Council with a focus on making decisions each believes is in the best interest of our city,” said Muir.   “I so appreciate their time and continued service.  As your Mayor, I want to thank the Council, city staff, and those that serve on our boards for each playing a key role in planning and implementing positive initiatives on behalf of all residents.  As a community, Sanger is growing and vibrant.  This certainly comes with some ‘growing pains’ as we work to improve our core infrastructure, support businesses, and strive to bring new amenities that Sanger residents desire.  Thank you for trusting your Council with these endeavors; we are humbled and will continue to work diligently on your behalf.”

Gary Bilyeu narrowly got by Lisa Freeman for City Council Place 2 on Saturday 116-104 votes (220 total) and Allen Chick was unopposed for Place 4.  Bilyeu has been a councilman since May of 2010 and Chick’s first term was 2014.  

There wasn’t an election for School Board.  Both, Sarah York and Stacy Moore were unopposed for their respective places.  York has been on the board since 2018 and this is Moore’s first run on the School Board.
