Marble Falls City Councilmember William “Dee” Haddock will now square off against incumbent Precinct 3 Commissioner Billy Wall in the Tuesday, March 3, 2020, GOP primary.

Meanwhile, two more people have entered the race for the Llano County Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace. Incumbent Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Debra (Deb) Edwards of Kingsland, who was appointed earlier this year to serve out the unexpired term of Era Marion, has filed to run for the office and will face a GOP primary challenge from police officer Dwayne Young Sr., deputy clerk Dorothy “Dot” Wooten, and retiree Jack Derington, all of Kingsland.
