EL RENO — Mayor Matt White is pleased with what he termed a "vote of confidence" by voters Tuesday. He took 64 percent of the vote and won a new term in office, despite having three opponents on the ballot.
White, 38, has been mayor for three years. He said he looks forward to helping the city carry out capital improvement projects approved in a $25 million bond issue in 2007.
The lifelong resident of El Reno previously served on the city council. He is in commercial and residential real estate and owns a sand and gravel business.
Also on Tuesday's ballot were Jerry Robertson, with 26.6 percent of the vote; David L. Hill, 4.7 percent; and Rita Anderson, 4.4 percent.
