New mayor for Elsmere

The Town of Elsmere has a new mayor.

Steven Burg defeated Edward Doyle in Saturday's election gathering 293 of the 540 votes cast.

Burg will finish his second term as 2nd District Town Councilman to take over as mayor within 7 days of certification of the election results.

In the only race for Town Council, 4th District incumbent Charles McKewen defeated Andrew Favreau 33-32.

The small margin of victory is triggering an automatic recount with the final results to be certified on Sunday.
