Jan Moore new Statesboro mayor

Written by  Wednesday, 04 December 2013 05:26

 Jan MooreJan Moore Final unofficial figures were released shortly after 8 p.m. last night and the winner in Tuesday’s runoff election is Jan Moore who defeated Jonathan McCollar by a 93 vote margin.   Moore finished with 980 votes to 887 for McCollar…52.5% to 47.5%.

 

  Moore took an early lead and maintained it throughout.  She had a nearly 2 to 1 lead after early, absentee and Precinct 2 votes were counted…64 percent to 36 percent.  McCollar made up a lot of that in Precinct 1.

 

  Moore’s win makes her the first woman mayor of Statesboro.  A McCollar win would have also been a first for the city…the first African-American mayor.

 

  Moore and McCollar were the top vote getters, respectively, in the November election but neither had enough votes to win outright.  Outgoing mayor Joe Brannen came in third in the four candidate field.

 

  Of the 10,697 registered voters in the city, 1,870 ballots were cast.  That translates into a 17.48 percent turnout.

 

  Moore will be sworn as Statesboro's new mayor at the January meeting of the Statesboro City Council.
