By Shaina Stockton

In Grayson County, only two newcomers joined any of the town councils holding elections — Fries, Independence and Troutdale.
The Independence Town Council race had four candidates vying for three available seats. The three incumbent candidates who received the most votes left the face of town council unchanged, with Buddy Halsey receiving 53 votes (31.4 percent), Jeffrey Miller receiving 46 (27.2 percent) and Tom Maxwell receiving 43 (25.4 percent).
Newcomer Jessica Anders was not elected; she received 27 votes, or 15.9 percent.
