Hill wins mayoral runoff in Leander


Unofficial election results show Troy Hill winning the mayoral runoff in Leander.

The Williamson County Election Commission reported Hill received 61.89 percent of the vote, beating rival Vic Villarreal to succeed outgoing Mayor Chris Fielder, who chose not to run for re-election after holding the office since 2012.

A former city council member who stepped down after just one term on the Leander City Council to run for mayor, Hill won both the early voting portion and the Election Day turnout, with a total of 1,577 votes to Villarreal’s 971.
