Next mayor decided Tuesday
DeKalb voters will go to the polls Tuesday to select their mayor for the next four years.
The polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
Incumbent Mayor Clark Adams is being challenged by former mayor Homer Hall, who served four terms at the post. Adams is running as a Democrat and Hall is running as an independent.
“I’ve been out, talking to people,” Clark said. “I am trying to get people out to support me so we can move this town forward.
“Four years was good but sometimes it takes more that four years to accomplish goals. I have gotten a lot of good positive response.”
Hall said he too, has been out trying to rally support for his campaign.
“I have made the rounds,” Hall said, “I talked to people and tried to find out what direction they wanted to take if I get elected.
“The main reason I ran, I haven’t seen much of any improvements being done in the past four years. I am trying to get in there so we can make something happen.”
