Jay Dean New Longview Mayor

    Months of campaigning through two elections has ended. Former councilman Jay Dean as the new mayor of Longview. When former mayor, Murray Moore suddenly resigned, no less than 7 candidates tried to win the office. That number was then whittled away to two, Jay Dean and Dr. Andy Mack. But in the end it went to Dean winning 54 percent of the vote.

   Dr. Andy Mack captured 46 percent. Dean feels his message was what got the attention of voters. A servant leader who would make things right. Now the new top man looks forward to hitting the ground running.

      "I'm very pleased with the work all of my campaign volunteers put in and now I'm ready to get back to doing the business of serving the people, and i look forward to being the one to lead the city" said Dean.

     The final numbers from the early vote and todays vote were Jay Dean 5022 votes. Dr. Andy Mack 4588 votes.  Dean will now serve the remainder of Murray Moore's term, which is one year.
