What do you know about the upcoming City of Denton election or the Denton Independent School District (DISD) bond election?

Election day for the city council election and the Denton ISD bond is Saturday, May 6, 2023.

The Republican Club is hosting a City Council Debate/Forum on March 29 at 1 p.m. in the clubhouse for candidates seeking to represent Robson Ranch residents in the city council race. Although open to all and free, you must register so we know how many people to expect. We are also hosting an informational meeting on the DISD bond on Friday, April 7, at 1 p.m. in the clubhouse. Registration is required for this event as well, and though it is free and open to the public, seating this day is limited to 200 due to availability of the facilities. Go to the calendar on our website and click on the date of the event to register.

Let’s bring you up to speed on the city in general now. The City of Denton has four councilman positions by geographic districts, two at-large city councilman positions, and one mayor, who is a voting member of the city council, for a total of seven members of the city council. We in Robson Ranch live in District 4 of the City of Denton. The city is governed in a Council-Manager form of government where the city’s decisions are made by the city council, but day-to-day operations are managed by the city manager who reports to the city council.

This spring all District (geographic) city council positions will be up for election, but we will only be voting on the candidates for District 4. There are three candidates vying for the District 4 spot: Joe Holland, Don Thornton, and Stephanie Neuharth.

Though DISD did not yet have any information about the bond on their website at this writing, it should be available by the time this is published.

School taxes make up the lion’s share of your property taxes. We, as Republicans, believe in fiscal responsibility and know that you must pay as you go and build for reasonably expected growth. We also care about future generations! Certainly, with the growth both the City of Denton and Denton County are experiencing, we have needs in our school districts. After the informational meeting is held, we will poll our membership and take a position on the bond.

If you are a member of the Robson Ranch Republican Club, you are already aware of these issues and many others, because our members are active and helping each other learn the facts about issues and reporting them to the rest of the club. If you’d like to join us, we meet the first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. in the clubhouse, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. You can sign up to join the club online at Just scroll to the bottom of the page and click join.
