Jordan Bankhead was nothing but complementary of Rick Addy, the winner of Tuesday's Ward 1 special election. Bankhead was opposite of Addy on the ticket to replace Jay Hughes on the Oxford Board of Aldermen.<>
"In this case, the good name of the Addy family prevailed. They have decades of relationships and friendships and at the end of the day, that's what mattered," Bankhead said. "I congratulate Rick. I'm happy for Rick and his family. He'll do fine."
Bankhead also took time to thank those voters that supported him.
"I made a lot of great friendships. I appreciate all the people that helped me the last couple of months and were there for me, I will never forget that," he said. "I obviously want to continue to help Oxford in any way I can."
