Three other seats in Groves were also up for grabs but were not contested. They are the seats held by Mayor Chris Borne, Ward 2 Councilman Paul Oliver and City Marshal Norman Reynolds Jr.

All four of the Groves seats have two-year terms.

In Port Neches, the seats held by Place 1 Councilman Chris McMahon and Place 2 Councilman Adam Anders are up for election, but neither councilman drew an opponent.

In the Port Neches-Groves Independent School District race, only the incumbents filed: Position 4 Trustee Lana Parker and Position 5 Trustee Brandon Cropper.

Terms for trustees are for three years.

Early voting runs from Oct. 24 to Nov. 4 for the general election on Nov. 8.
