The filing period for municipal board elections ended Friday, Feb. 28, and elections will be held for positions on the  Olney City Council and Olney ISD Board of Trustees.

A race developed for the position of mayor and for the two at-large positions up for election on the Olney City Council. Incumbent mayor Brenda Palmer Stennett filed to retain her post and will be challenged by current City Council member Phil B. Jeske II. 

Those who filed for the at-large City Council positions include incumbent Chris Garcia, Hubert J. Gray, Tommy Kimbro and Tom Parker.

On the Olney ISD Board of Trustees, current Place 7 holder David Ickert is being challenged for his position by Brandon Cook. Kyle Hinson is unopposed for Place 6.


Only the incumbents filed to retain their positions on the Hamilton Hospital Board of Directors, so that election will be canceled and current office-holders will keep their seats. 

Olney board representatives who were up for election, and who filed, include Bob Craig, Don Buckalew, Russell Altmiller and Ron Rogers. 

Angela Taylor filed for and will retain the available Newcastle representative seat. 

The general election is planned for Saturday, May 10. Early voting will be held from Monday, April 28, through Tuesday, May 6. Further information on election day polling times and locations will be released as soon as they are announced.
