The nominating ballot of the Special Council serves to place in official nomination the names of candidates (potential nominees) for Bishop Coadjutor.
The Official Nominees are:
The Rev. Scott Brown, St. Alban’s, Harlingen
The Rev. Ram Lopez, St. George, San Antonio
The Rev. Jim Nelson, St. John’s, McAllen
The Rev. David Read, St. Luke’s, San Antonio
The Rt. Rev. David Reed, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of West Texas
The Rev. Robert Woody, Reconciliation, San Antonio
Next comes the first electing ballot. To reach an election, an official nominee must receive a simple majority of votes (50% + 1) in both the clergy and the lay order on the same ballot.
