There were no changes in the vote totals in Bessemer after provisional ballots were counted, according to reports. That means that on November 2, the day after they are sworn in, the new mayor and council can get started. Cleo King, district 7 council person elect, has said more than once he's "ready to make a difference," and let's just hope the rest of the council is, too.
The council will be as follows.
District 1 - David Vance
District 2 - Sherrina Rice
District 3 - Sarah Belcher
District 4 - Donna Thigpen
District 5 - Ron Marshall
District 6 - Jesse Matthews
District 7 - Cleo King
And of course, Mayor Ken Gulley.
This change occurs in 18 days and some very interesting things are going take place pretty quickly. Some people might want to run and hide. I'm just sayin'.
