Incumbent Mayor Barry Moody will square off with challenger Kenneth Vines in a mayoral run-off election on October 4. Moody tallied 360 votes in Tuesday’s election while Vines had 355. Former mayor, Robert Finley finished a distant third with 118 votes.

In District A challenger Neil McCarty beat incumbent Terry Mangrum, 110 to 85. In District B where longtime incumbent David Ennis chose not to run, former mayor Matt Hurst held off a stiff challenge from newcomer Charlotte Blasingame, 110 to 80.

In District C, Tony Thomas walloped challenger Bertha Bell 120 to 18; and in District E incumbent Tammie Williams defeated challenger Randy Talley 118 to 41. Incumbent Michael Ellis in District D was not challenged so was automatically re-elected.

Vines, a former LaFayette Police Chief, is expected to give popular mayor Moody a run for his money in the October run-off. Both campaigned vociferously through LaFayette’s neighborhoods in the past couple of weeks.
