Fifteen votes is all it took to elect a new mayor of Alexandria Thursday.

Jim H. York, Jr. ran unopposed in the Alexandria Municipal Election and received fifteen votes to become the town's next mayor. He succeeds incumbent Mayor Ria Baker, who chose not to seek re-election.

Only nineteen people voted in the election including sixteen in person and three by absentee. Since the election was uncontested, only paper ballots were used.

In addition to the election of York as mayor, Pat Jackson received eighteen votes in his bid for alderman. He ran unopposed.

Three aldermen were to have been elected but no one else qualified to run.

It will apparently be up to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen to make an appointment to fill those two aldermen positions.

Altogether, Alexandria has a mayor and six aldermen positions.
