After last night’s runoff election, East Point will welcome a new mayor.

Attorney and local business owner Jannquell Peters won the election with 2,071 of the 2,908 votes cast, about 71 percent of the total.

Her opponent, Clyde Mitchell, received 837 votes, totaling about 29 percent of the ballots.

In a statement, Peters said,“I want to take this opportunity to thank my campaign committee, volunteers, contributors, friends and family for their undying support during my campaign. Mostly, I want to express my sincere gratitude to the citizens of our great city for their vote of confidence. As mayor, it is my commitment to serve the residents of East Point, as a positive and professional advocate-in-chief and ambassador. I look forward to working with the city council and city manager towards a bright and promising future."
