It's official! Alan Hugley is the new mayor of Red Oak. Congrats to Alan, his family and the super-hard work done "in the trenches" by Chris Moses and others to bring this election home.
The campaigns were run on the high side with mutual respect being the fresh exception in local city politics. This cooperative spirit should carry over into city business as Alan takes the reins. He'll work just fine with the new city manager and Police Chief.
Good Race and Well Done! We'll be watching to see that positive things get done!
