Berlin Mayor, Council Election Results
BERLIN -- Voters re-elected Mayor Gee Williams in today's Berlin election.
Williams received 588 votes Tuesday, far ahead of challenger Lisa Hall, who received 137 votes.
In the District 2 race, Zackery Tyndall received 185 votes, coming out ahead of Jack Orris, who collected 116 votes.
Williams has been a familiar face in Berlin politics since 2003 when he joined the town council. When then-Mayor Tom Cardinale died suddenly in the spring of 2008, Williams, as council vice president, was charged with completing his term. He filed for election again that fall, defeating challenger Rex Hailey, and ran unopposed in 2012.
Hall, who was elected to her second council term in 2012, made it known early on that she intended to run for mayor in 2016. Williams, however, wasn’t ready to give up the seat.
