Mansfield school board, council incumbents re-elected

Burgess and Baas earn second terms.

There won’t be any new faces on the Mansfield City Council and Mansfield ISD school board this year.

Incumbents Wendy Burgess and Danny Baas won re-election to the council and school board, respectively, in Saturday’s election.

“I would like to thank the citizens of Mansfield for your confidence in my continuing leadership,” Burgess, 43, said via e-mail. “I am humbled by your overwhelming support and will honor your wishes to build a prosperous future for our great city.”

The local business owner received 79 percent of the vote to win a second three-year term in Place 6 on the council. Kelvin Stroy Sr., the 39-year-old principal of Arlington Workman Junior High School, received 13 percent of the vote, while Kendall Polk, a 44-year-old surgical technologist, took 6 percent.

Local business owner Larry Broseh, 59, was unopposed for his fifth three-year term at Place 7 on the council.

In the school board race, Baas received 62 percent of the vote to earn a second three-year term in Place 6.

“I’m honored that the poeple voted for me again,” said the 42-year-old Mansfield police officer. “I’m excited about the new ag science center, the rebuilding of the new elementary schools and continuing with the new iPad program.”

Baas’ opponent, Kory Watkins, 30, a bartender at a local restaurant, received 28 percent of the vote.

Courtney Wilson, 43, co-owner of a local fitness center, was unopposed for her second three-year term in Place 7 on the school board.
