Newcomer to city council claims Place 1

Lisa Prewitt was elected to the city council Place 1 seat after receiving more than twice as many votes as her opponent, Planning and Zoning Commission Chairman Bill Taylor.

Prewitt received 1,682 votes, making up for 75.9 percent of the votes for Place 1, while Taylor received 534 votes , accounting for 24.1 percent.

Taylor said he ended the night “disappointed” by his loss in the election. He hugged his children and thanked his supporters during the watch party at Rooftop on The Square after a majority of the poll results were released. Supporters were in disbelief, some saying they did not know how true the polling results were.
