Comal County Precinct 1 commissioner candidates Doug Leecock and Joyce Yannuzzi will square off in the May 28 Republican primary runoff election.

Leecock led the vote count in Tuesday’s primary election with 3,626 votes to Yannuzzi’s 3,260 votes.  But Republican Henry White amassed 1, 132 votes or 14.12% of the 8,018 votes cast in the Precinct 1 race, leaving Leecock with 45.22% of the vote and Yannuzzi with 40.66%.

In Texas, runoffs for primary elections are triggered when a candidate fails to get 50% plus one vote.

The winner of the primary runoff will face Democrat Julie Sanders for the Precinct 1 seat on the Commissioners Court.

Canyon Lake resident Leecock, who has fought for improvements at county boat ramps for over three years, drew the strongest support from the Canyon Lake area, carrying precincts 104, 105, 107, and 108 and 109, shown in blue on the map above.

Yannuzzi, who lives in New Braunfels and works for State Sen. Donna Campbell in District 25, received the most votes in Bulverde, Spring Branch and New Braunfels, winning precincts 101, 102, 103, 106, and 110, shown in green on the map above.

White won between 10 to 22% of the vote in each precinct.

On Facebook, Leecock thanked voters for supporting his campaign.

“The results clearly demonstrate your support of me as a leader and my demonstration of the level of hard work and determination that will carry through to me serving Comal County as commissioner of Precinct 1. “…We can’t stop now. I’m asking you to go to the polls once again and make your voice heard.  I can’t do this without you.”

Also on Facebook Yannuzzi thanked voters and supporters.

“I sincerely ask for your continued support and vote in 10 weeks,” she said. “We’re in it to win it! Let’s do this!”

Only 23.03% of the county’s 136,869  registered voters showed up at the polls Tuesday, casting 31,527 ballots.
