Rusty Mills, who died in March, won re-election to the Place 5 seat on the Shiner school board.

State law required Mills' name remain on the ballot because of the timing of his death as it related to when he applied for re-election.

Community reaction to the result was varied.

"I'm surprised," said Max Moore III, who also filed for the seat. "I don't know what I am going to do moving forward. I'll need to think about it."

Shiner school Superintendent Trey Lawrence said he suspected Mills would win.

"I'm not surprised," Lawrence said. "It's an unusual situation."

The school board will meet Wednesday to name a replacement to serve a one-year term. An election for a full, three-year term will be in 2014.

With no city election, the school district had to foot the entire bill to conduct the election, although the candidates for the other two seats were unopposed.
