After a brief three week runoff campaign, the votes have been counted:
David Morris – 2,022
Belinda Laforce – 1,372
The margin of victory was 20 percent.
Laforce was an 8-year incumbent. She will leave office on January 1.
Morris, a former county judge, is believed to be the only person elected White County Judge & Searcy mayor. The Patriot is working to verify this.
Editor’s Note: “The people of Searcy have made a clear & decisive choice. They are tired of the lack of leadership in city hall. Today, it is a new day in Searcy. Mayor-elect Morris is a man of integrity who will lead with honesty & transparency. We look forward to the bright future ahead for our great city. Congratulations, Mister Mayor.”
