Craig C. Mabray will join incumbent Tommy Chaney on the Marble Falls Independent School District Board of Trustees, according to unofficial voting returns Saturday.

"I am honored by the voters, and will certainly keep to my commitment to make the best decisions for the kids, the community as a whole and the taxpayers," said Mabray. "I'm excited to get started."

Mabray, who was vying for the Place 3 seat against three other challengers, prevailed with 751 votes - 43.71 percent of the total vote.

Place 4 Trustee Chaney defended his seat, amassing 672 votes, or 40.02 percent.

"I'd just like to thank ail the voters for giving me another three years to take care of school business and trust in me with their kids and what's going on with the schools," Chaney said. "It's good that there are so many people involved who wanted to be involved with the school. That's the good part about it."

Rounding out the Place 3 race were Scott Ross 519 (30.21 percent), Craig Harold Cosgray, 241 (14.03 percent) and Bob McCall, 207 (12.05 percent).

Falling to Chaney in the Place 4 race were challengers Jerry Watson, 602 (34.03 percent), and David Barr, 405 (24.12 percent).
