SMITHVILLE • For Smithville’s mayoral race — the town's only contested race on Tuesday’s ballot — Nancy Bishop received 47 votes, or 34% to Phil Goodwin’s 87 votes, or 64%.

There were three write-ins. 

Bishop and Goodwin are both sitting members of the board of aldermen.

Goodwin will succeed one-term Mayor Earl Wayne Cowley.

After the new administration takes office in July, Smithville will have to set special elections for alderman seats. Three people — incumbent Sheila Bennett, Jimmy Dabbs and Leigh Skinner — were elected to the board of aldermen, and two people will be elected in the special election to fill the remaining seats.

Each of Smithville’s aldermen hold at-large positions.

All candidates in Smithville ran as independents.
