Lake Park - A heated mayor's election in the city of Lake Park Tuesday.

Mayor Keith Sandlin is being challenged by city councilman Jesse Fender. In August, Fender voted with two other council members to remove Sandlin from office. He says Sandlin improperly reprimanded city employees, but a superior court judge ruled in favor of Sandlin.

"I've served the people here as a city council member and mayor, and my heart's always been for the community," said Sandlin.

"Several friends asked me to run because they thought it was time for a change and I agree," said Fender.

Mayor Sandlin says if re-elected, he'll focus on improving the water and sewer system and revising the city charter. Fender is also concerned with the water system and hopes to improve the city property.
