Gerard Hudspeth was elected mayor of Denton on Tuesday night.
According to unofficial results from the Denton County Elections Office, Hudspeth defeated Keely Briggs with 53.2% of the 15,870 votes cast in the runoff election.
There were two other Denton runoff elections decided Tuesday night. Paul Meitzer defeated Jim Mann for Place 6 on the Denton City Council with 52.5% of the vote, and Connie Baker defeated Ronnie Anderson with 59.9% of the vote for District 2.
The runoff was held this week because in the Nov. 3 General Election, none of the candidates in those Denton races received more than 50% of the vote.
