Sylvester-- The mayor of Sylvester will keep his job. Mayor Bill Yearta received 61.3 percent of the vote Tuesday night, a total of 689 votes.

He beat out political newcomer Ronnie Hill who got 440 votes. Both men say the race was fair and respectable. Yearta says he plans to continue to make positive changes in the city.

"One of the good things about politics is you get to go out and visit with folks and find out what's on their mind and certainly I got ideas about things we can do in the future," says Yearta.

"Both of us ran a good race and I don't have anything to be ashamed of but I will be back," says Hill.

Hill says we haven't heard the last of him. He plans to run for city council in Ward 4 or county commission.
