Historic mayoral race in Dawson
An historic win in the city of Dawson in Tuesday's midterm election.
Ada Lemons-McIntyre, defeated incumbent R.L. Albritten with 59 percent of the vote to become the next mayor of Dawson.
That makes Lemons-McIntyre the first African-American woman to hold that office.
She says she was inspired to run for mayor because she wanted a change in her community.
Her plans for the city include raising wages for city employees, fixing the potholes throughout the city, and developing a plan to clean up after Hurricane Michael.
"I really can't explain or expound on it," said Lemons-McIntyre. "It's a new adventure for me and I believe I'm ready for the task."
Other issues she's planning to tackle include attracting industry to the city.
She'll take office in January.
