Marble Falls voters keep incumbents, add former council member

MARBLE FALLS — Voters May 12 returned two incumbents to the City Council and a former member who served in the 1990s.

Incumbents John Packer and Rich Lewis earned another two-year term on the council. They will be joined by former Councilman Reed Norman.

 

“I’m excited to be back on the council,” Norman said. “I remember being on it in the late 1990s and how rewarding it was.”

Norman led at the ballot box, nabbing 153 votes followed by Lewis with 148 and Packer with 142.

Businessman Larson Lloyd, the fourth person in the race, finished with 122 votes.

Only 565 people voted in the Marble Falls city election, according to results from the Burnet County Elections Office.

Lewis said he was excited about getting another term.

“There are still so many projects left on the table that I want to keep working on,” he said. “I’m really excited about being a part of the city right now in such a dynamic time. My heart is really with the city and the people.”

Norman said one of his goals as a council member is to make improvements to the streets and work with the public.

“My focus will be on the infrastructure,” he said. “We’ve done a great job with the hospital and the (technology) park. I really want to focus on our streets.”

Upcoming projects for Marble Falls include the Scott & White regional medical center south of town, a new visitors center and encouraging more tourist traffic to the area.
