Jumpertown alderman Cindy White will be the town’s new mayor.

White won the general election Tuesday with a vote of 43-36 over Stanley Michaels. Incumbent Mayor Coy Perrigo did not seek reelection.

Incumbent Susan Smith Bane and newcomers Pam Shook Holder and Christoper Robinson were elected without opposition to the town’s board of aldermen.

With five seats on the board and only three candidates, the town will be required to set a special election later in the year to fill the two remaining seats on the board.
