The election is May 30. There will be no early voting on May 29 since the courthouse will be closed for Memorial Day.
David Anderson, a Democrat and a former mayor who is currently serving as interim mayor, garnered 456 votes and finished first in a special election on May 9, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a runoff with independent candidate, Joe Rogers.
Rogers, also a former mayor, received 389 votes in the 3-man race, finishing ahead of independent, Ronny Carr.
The winner will serve until December 31, 2018, completing the term of former Monticello Mayor Zack Tucker who resigned on January 17.
