City Council, Charter Election Early Voting to Begin Soon

Sugar Land, TX - Early voting will be held Oct. 13-30 for Sugar Land’s Nov. 3 City Council and charter election.

In addition to the positions of mayor, at-large one, and at-large two, the ballot will include nine possible changes to the city’s charter. 

Mayor Joe R. Zimmerman and At Large Position 2 Councilmember Jennifer Lane are unopposed. Taylor Landin and William Ferguson are running for the At Large Position 1 position occupied by Himesh Gandhi, who will vacate the seat due to term-limit requirements in the City Charter.

Sugar Land’s City Charter is a document that establishes the form of government for Sugar Land. This includes provisions for a council-manager form of government, legislative authority of City Council, general elections provisions, finance provisions and several other areas outlining the governing of Sugar Land. Every five years, City Council appoints a citizen task force to review and make recommendations for possible amendments or updates to the charter.
