Lamb also wanted to see major construction projects, including the new public safety center and competitive swimming pool, completed while he is in office.

Massey, the Ward 4 councilman, beat challenger Shilpa Abbitt with 67.4 percent of the vote. Massey was appointed to the Ward 4 job a year ago.

“It's exciting to have actually gone through an election and have a number of people actually go out and vote, check the box and say they support what I was doing,” Massey said. “It's a very humbling experience. I feel more connected to the public than before.”

Davis was first sworn into office in November 2011 after being appointed to the Ward 3 job when Lamb was appointed mayor because Mayor Patrice Douglas resigned to become a state corporation commissioner.

“This is another milestone in my life,” Davis said. “It's wonderful, humbling for me in this first election to represent this great town.”

Davis and Massey will serve four-year terms.
