May election day results: Pearland Mayor Tom Reid and Quentin Wiltz enter run-off, Moore re-elected, David Little wins, Dalia Kasseb and Woody Owens move to June run-off

While longtime Pearland Mayor Tom Reid had more than 50 percent of the vote during early voting, support for Quentin Wiltz poured in on election day, and both Reid and Wiltz will face a run-off election on June 10. Reid secured 48.85 percent of the vote and Wiltz earned 45.64 percent of the vote, according to the unofficial results posted by the Brazoria County Clerk’s Office. A third contender for mayor, Jimi Amos, received 5.51 percent of the vote.

Because no candidate secured more than 50 percent of the vote, Reid and Wiltz will enter a second round of voting called a run-off election.

Dawson Diamonds Present Tenth Annual Diamond Dazzle

Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Dawson High School’s Drill Team danced their first dance? Well it has! The Dawson High School Diamonds Dance Team invites you to their 10 birthday party celebration on Friday, May 5th and Saturday, May 6th at 7:00 p.m. in the Dawson High School auditorium, located at 2050 Cullen Boulevard, Pearland, TX 77581. The show features performances from the nationally accredited Diamond Dancers, the Dawson dance classes, and Dawson Cheer.

Every year, DAZZLE blows the audience away with fantastic dancing, hilarious entertainment and a spectacular theme. The theme for the show this year is “It’s Our Party” and the evening will be sure to DAZZLE you into a festive party mood.

The Diamond Dancers and Dawson Dance Department are led by director Mrs. Leslie Grant and assistant director Miss Megan Railey. Under their direction, the Diamonds hold multiple Grand Champion titles from this year’s competitions.

“Most people don’t know we compete in the spring, they may think we only dance during the half-time at football games in the fall. So our annual DAZZLE show is a great time to let everyone know what we’re about and what we really shine at: PERFORMING,” Mrs. Grant said.

This year’s team consists of 33 girls who flawlessly execute a wide range of dances, from tap to jazz to kick to hip hop.

In addition to the dancing aspect of the show, Spring Show is also a goodbye for the seniors. For the thirteen seniors on Diamonds, this will be the last time they perform with the team.

After so many hours of practice and hard work, it’s obvious that these girls have a strong dynamic with each other. Not only do the Diamonds enjoy being part of a sisterhood, they pride themselves on being dedicated members, as well as being sharp and superior dancers. Each dance is practiced and performed to perfection. Everyone is encouraged to come watch the Dance Department, Dawson Cheer, and the Diamonds shine at DAZZLE.

Tickets for both days ($10 for general seating and $12 for premium seating) may be purchased at the door or online @ https://ticketracker.com/store/events/188

Refreshments will also be sold at the Spring Show.

All proceeds benefit the Dawson Diamonds Dance Team.
