Stinson, Davis win run-offs

By Justin Tubbs

In a runoff Tuesday, Precinct 1 County Commissioner’s Court candidate Randy Stinson narrowly edged Bobby Crittenden in the Republican primary, grabbing 50.72 percent of the vote.

Stinson received 350 votes while Crittenden received 340. Stinson will now face Democratic candidate Ronald Levingston for the Commissioner’s Court seat to replace current Precinct 1 Commissioner Dennis Robinson, who is not seeking re-election.
In the Precinct 3 race for Ellis County constable, Democrat Tyron Davis received the majority of the vote, defeating incumbent Jimmy Ray. Davis received 164 of the 236 votes cast in the primary runoff.

In the March 1 primary, Davis received only three more votes than Ray.

There is no Republican candidate for the position, making Davis the newly elected constable.

Davis was arrested earlier this month after claims that he committed an election code violation by helping senior living residents fill out mail-in ballot applications but not reporting that he helped.

An arrest affidavit states that many of the mail-in ballot applicants did not know what they were signing.

Neither Davis nor Stinson could be reached for comment by press time.
