Florence Mayor Myers Ervin victorious in runoff
City Councilmember Teresa Myers Ervin will face Republican candidate Bryan Braddock in the Florence mayoral election in November.
Myers Ervin earned the opportunity by defeating fellow councilmember George Jebaily in a Democratic Primary runoff on June 23.
Unofficial results from the runoff had Myers Ervin earning 55 percent of the votes to 45 for Jebaily.
A total of 3,994 ballots were cast.
Ervin, who has served on the city council since 2010, said she is grateful for the opportunity to serve the city and it citizens.
Florence Mayor Stephen Wukela announced last fall that he would not seek a fourth term. Wukela has served mayor since 2008.
