The Garland City Council has appointed Ricky C. McNeal to fill the District 1 seat until the City’s next general election.

McNeal is a graduate of Louisiana Tech University. He formerly served on the City’s bond study committee, chaired its East Garland Area Implementation Committee and was a member of the City’s Utility Advisory Board.

His appointment is until the next general election, May 1. That election will be to finish out the current term. District 1 voters will then return to the polls in May 2022 to elect a representative to a full term.

The District 1 seat was on the Nov. 3 ballot. However, the lone candidate withdrew shortly before the election, creating a vacancy. Garland reached out to the Governor’s office for a decision as to whether an emergency election was needed. Meanwhile, Council posted the position and interviewed several applicants. The Governor’s office responded Dec. 14 saying it would not authorize the special election. McNeal was appointed the next day.
