Ron Rordam defeated environmentalist Don Langrehr for the mayor's seat.
On city council, 2 dems and one GOP were elected. Thats about as good as we can hope.
There will now be a special election for Rordam's council seat. No word on when that will be. Hopefully another GOP can win in that special election.
Galax: All dems were elected to city council.
Harrisonburg: Mayor Larry Rogers was handily booted off city council and was replaced by former mayor Carolyn Frank and Ted Byrd was also elected (indys).
Lynchburg: 2 dems and one GOP elected to city council.
Roanoke: The GOP finished 6th and 7th here. All 3 elected were the "independents" endorsed by the Roanoke Chamber of Commerce (they were dems in reality as well).
Staunton: Del. Chris Saxman's challenger from last year, Bruce Elder won a seat on city council here.
