Council Place 2 incumbent Jude Prather wins re-election

Incumbent Jude Prather defeated opponents Mason Murphy and Thom Prentice for the San Marcos City Council Place 2 seat Tuesday night.

Prather finished with 68.75 percent of the votes. Murphy followed with 19.28 percent, and Prentice earned 11.67 percent. Prather claimed his victory in the election before all eight precincts reported polling results and addressed the crowd, which included his father, wife and childhood best friend.

“I think the campaign went well, but three months of campaigning is nothing like three years of governing,” Prather said. “The hard work comes next.”
