Montgomery County Probate Judge Steven Reed will be the next mayor of Alabama’s capital city.
Reed on Tuesday overwhelmingly defeated WCOV Fox 20 owner David Woods in the Montgomery mayoral runoff election.
With all but one precinct reporting, Reed had 67% of the vote. Reed garnered 32,918 votes compared to Woods’ 16,010.
Reed will be sworn into office November 12 and become the first black mayor in Montgomery’s history.
The city will have been incorporated 200 years ago on December 3.
