Craig A. O’Der was elected mayor of Ridgeway on Tuesday, according to Henry County Registrar Elizabeth Stone.
O’Der won the office with 50 votes, Stone said. A total of 58 people voted in the election, she said, out of 520 registered town voters.
Four people filed to run for the six seats on the Ridgeway Town Council, Stone said. They are Michael R. Bass, who won with 48 votes; W. Kevin Hubbard, who won with 44 votes; Elizabeth P. Jones, who won with 43 votes; and Bradford E. Rakes, who won with 44 votes.
The remaining two council seats went to write-in candidates Pattie B. Walmsley and Lorna G. Adkins, both of whom have accepted the positions, Stone said.
