Brookshire swears in new council member, community plans town hall

Posted

In a brief Monday afternoon meeting, Brookshire’s newest alderperson, Monique Taylor, was sworn in for the Position 1 seat alongside re-elected Mayor Darrell Branch and Alderperson for Position 2 Lyndon Stamps after the council voted to approve canvasing of the May 1 election tallies.

Taylor took the Position 1 seat with about 69% of the vote in her race against incumbent Marilyn Vaughn. Branch retained the mayoral seat with roughly 62% of the vote while Stamps held his position more narrowly with only about 34% of the vote, narrowly beating runner-up, Susette Inez Baines.

The election is over, but Baines said she is working to still serve the Brookshire community. She is planning a town hall meeting for city residents with representatives from city government as well as Waller County. The meeting will be held at The Hangar Unity Center – 4010 Fourth Street in Brookshire – at 2 p.m. on June 6. Anyone with questions for panelists can email those questions in advance to brookshiretownhallmeeting@gmail.com. Questions are due no later than May 21, Baines said.

Confirmed guests as of May 11 include Waller County Sheriff Troy Guidry, Mayor Branch and Alderpersons Kim Branch and Taylor, Baines said.
