PEARLAND, Texas- Voters cast their ballots in several key elections in Pearland on Saturday.

This year, long-time mayor Tom Reid was challenged by newcomers Quentin Wiltz and Jimi Amos.

Reid came in barely ahead with 49 percent of the vote, so there will be a run-off against Quentin Wiltz.

Ten candidates also competed for three city council positions.

J. Darnell Jones took on incumbent Gary Moore for Position 3. Moore beat Jones with 55 percent of the vote.

Six candidates were in the running for newly elected Position 7. Candidates include Bud Tollefsen, Sherry Stockwell, Woody Owens, G.C. Sonny Atkins, Dalia Kasseb, and Terry Gray.

Position 7 will also go to a run-off election since no one got 50 percent of the vote. However, Dalia Kasseb was noticeably ahead at this point with 41 percent of the vote Saturday.
