Arlington, Lewisville liquor sales approved; Solis wins DISD seat

Posted: Updated:

Alcohol sales passed in two big North Texas cities and voters approved all statewide propositions in elections on Tuesday.

The cities of Arlington and Lewisville approved liquor sales by wide margins. There was no organized opposition in either city to the measures.

Texas voters approved all nine propositions on the statewide ballot. The most notable was Proposition 6, which allocates $2 billion from the state's so-called rainy day fund to pay for water infrastructure. That includes laying new pipelines and creating new reservoirs.

Dallas ISD voters in District 8 elected Miguel Solis to fill an empty seat on the district's board of trustees. Solis defeated Kristi Lara for the seat that represents the Love Field area. Solis previously worked for embattled superintendent Mike Miles.

Voters approved all three Fort Worth ISD bond proposals. The measures will fund $400 million for security, technology and infrastructure upgrades; fund a science and technology high school and build a fine arts academy and $30 million for school buses.
