Voters returned to the polls Tuesday in Tallassee and elected a new mayor.
Johnny Hammock took home a decisive victory over opponent George McCain with 781 votes compared to McCain’s 261.
Hammock won the support of voters with five main platform areas he will address as mayor: economic development, public Safety, education, beautification and youth sports. He’s eager to begin his new post.
“I just want to tell everyone in Tallassee that I will get up and go to work every day and do the best I can do,” Hammock told AlabamaNews. “I will never rest. I will be the hardest working mayor you’ve seen in a long time. So I can’t wait to get in there. I’m just overexcited right now.”
Hammock will be sworn in on Nov 7.
