Although the three incumbents for the Dallas City Council ran unopposed, Dallas City Manager Kendall Smith said the real surprise in the election was the number of residents who voted on the referendum regarding Sunday retail sales of alcohol.

The referendum was approved with 101 votes cast in favor of it and 72 opposed.

“We were delighted to see that many residents vote on the referendum,” Smith said.

“It was a pleasant surprise with regard to the vote total,” he said.

Dallas council members seeking re-election were Nancy Arnold, who garnered 135 complimentary votes for her at-large seat while Ward 1 council representative Chris Carter tallied 131 votes with Ward 3 representative R. Griffin White taking 101 votes.
