Bertram City Councilman Adam Warden will become the next mayor of Bertram, while Jane Scheidler joins Kim Klose on the City Council in final but unofficial results from the Saturday, May 5, election.

In Burnet, voters approved 16 of 17 proposed City Charter amendments on the ballot, most by a very healthy margin. And in Granite Shoals, newcomers will take all three spots on the Granite Shoals City Council.


Warden, who did not seek re-election to his City Council seat, took a 19-10 lead in absentee and early voting and then coasted to victory on Election Day, winning by a 92-30 margin over Danielle Armknecht.

Cynthia Anderson

  Q: What prompted you to file for the Mayor position?

I am Mayor pro-tem at this time and when I asked the Mayor if he was going to run again he indicated he was not, so that is when I turned in my application. I want to see this community continue to succeed and I think I am the person that can get the job done.
