Big changes are happening in Warrenton, according to Mayor-elect George Ivey.
The city held its mayoral election on Nov. 5 with three possible candidates, one that included current second-term Mayor Tony Mimbs. According to the numbers, people seemed to want a change, took to the ballots and elected a new mayor after Mimbs ran unopposed in the previous election. The voter turnout more than doubled from 2010. There was a total of 461 votes.
The man that voters called upon to begin leading the city in January is pastor George Ivey. He won the election with 40 percent of the votes. "The people want a change. Everybody wants a change," said Mayor-elect Ivey. "When we get to a point of being comfortable, we don't do anything. Right now, I don't think anyone is doing their job."
According to Ivey, who will be the city's first African American mayor, it will be a refreshing and much needed change for Warrenton.
