ROCKWALL, TX – Dec. 18, 2020 – In early 2021, the City of Rockwall will call an election to be held on May 1, 2021 for the purpose of electing the Mayor and three City Councilmembers – one each for Places 1, 3 and 5.

Terms for Rockwall City Councilmembers are for a period of two years. Incumbents Bennie Daniels (Place 1) and Dana Macalik (Place 5) are eligible to run for re-election if they so desire.
