Voters chose former Waxahachie Mayor John Wray to represent them in the Texas House of Representatives, and ousted longtime Precinct 2 Commissioner Bill Dodson in favor of challenger Lane Grayson.

Wray prevailed in the House District 10 race with 5,610 total votes, 689 more than his opponent T.J. Fabby, who pulled in 4,921 total votes.

Wray, who has no Democratic challenger, said after taking some rest with his family he plans to put together his plan for the next legislative sesson in January.

“I want to solicit a lot of input from the district as far as goals and issues for the next session,” Wray said.

One of those issues, Wray said, include the lawsuit over public education finance.

“We need to deal with that in a way that supports local school districts,” he said.

Other issues include those stemming from the state’s rapid population growth, particularly the effect that growth has on transportation infrastructure.

Lane Grayson, the challenger in the Precinct 2 Commissioner race, won out with 1,448 total votes. The incumbent, Bill Dodson, collected 1,242 votes.
