JESUP — Jesup’s mayor was replaced by the challenger who tried replacing him in the last election.

Mayor Larry Thompson, 69, who runs a manufacturing business, received just 259 votes. Challenger Chris Even, 41, Evansdale’s wastewater foreman, garnered 525 votes.

Even told The Courier he was running on a platform to bring more resident involvement in city meetings and more quality of life improvements.

In the crowded at-large race, council members Dawn Vogel, Richard Mott and Russ Solomon also were replaced, garnering 306, 277 and 207 votes, respectively. In their places will be top vote-getters Craig Wright, Curtis Schares and David Bishop, who received 501, 411 and 332 votes, respectively, in the unofficial tally. Challenger Rick Deitrick picked up 170 votes.
