Michael Tobias defeated opponent Brandy Heindl in the contest to replace District 6 Kyle City Council Member Daphne Tenorio, who resigned following her decision to run for Hays County tax assessor-collector in November.

Turnout in the Jan. 25 election was relatively low, with only 139 votes cast, according to unofficial results from Hays County. Tobias garnered 97 of those votes, or 69.78%, while Heindl had 42, or 30.22%.
