from The Houston Chronicle
[League City] Former mayor Pat Hallisey, 55, a consultant, polled 1,970 votes to 1,358 for former councilman Jerry Shults, 46, head of a health company. A third candidate, council member Keith Dill, 42, a pesticide company owner, registered 1,282 votes.
The Galveston Daily News has more. There's an interesting quote from Shults:
"I think the results clearly show that League City is clearly a Republican city, and I look forward to reuniting the Republican Party," Shults said. "You take the total number of votes for me and Keith, who is Republican, and it's clear the support is in our favor."
League City's Code of Ordinance specifically states that the ballots be nonpartisan. And eventhough we all knew their party affiliation, neither Dill or Hallisey had brought it up. Also, while Bush did get more votes in the 2004 election, across the other races Democrats were fairly strong... therefore, League City being "clearly" Republican is about as specious as Bush man-date.
