Clintondale - The results are in. The unpopular, embattled incumbent mayor Kathy Lambert, who opted to run for a 2nd term earlier this year, has finished last in a field of 4 candidates in Clintondale's Mayoral Election last night. The winner, by 50.45%, was relative political newcomer Andrew Gibson, 42, who has sat on city council, his first elected position, for 4 months. He is the first Republican mayor of the city since 1953. This is said to be due to the fact with the extreme dissatisfaction with the incumbent Democratic mayor. Locked in a virtual tie were candidates Marquis Washington, a councillor for District 8, and Wendy Li, the city's Public Works commisioner, who both received about 20% of the vote. If one of those two candidates had won, they would have become the first minority mayor of Clintondale. Washington is African-American, and Li immigrated from Korea in 1985. Gibson campaigned on a platform of restoring the city's East Side, where he resides. That area of the city has been called a "humanitarian disaster" and a "warzone". Washington and Li said they were "glad the city has found new leadership", and they hope to keep their positions with the city, despite planned downsizing and elimination of Council Districts. Gibson said he was "thrilled to be in his position, and cannot wait to change the way the troubled city is run". Although we got in contact with exiting mayor Kathy Lambert, she hung up when we asked her about the election. East Side resident Amanda Daniels says, "This could be the rebirth of Clintondale". Watertown resident Kara Landrum stated, "This could be the spark that Clintondale needs right now". Even the suburbs feel they will benefit from the new mayor. Gliddow Hill mayor De'Shaunte Weathers says, "Mr. Gibson has said he's going to bring jobs to Clintondale. And that means more people coming to suburbs like mine, and buying up all these vacant homes". Mayor-Elect Gibson will be inaugurated on December 1st, 2010.

Congrats to Mayor "elect" Gibson, looks like the peeps of Clintondale we're not happy with the leadership.

Brandonberg as well saw it's first Republican mayor since the sprawl boom of the 60's.

Mayor Michael DeLuca III of Brandonberg would like to arrange to meet someday?

And congrats to Mayor DeLuca, as well.

Maybe they can meet, one day. Is Brandonberg accepting any Sister Cities?

Yes, DeLuca won big time, those crazy democrats put 5 to run against 3 republicans and thus DeLuca won big.

Yes, they sure can meet... We would love to accept a sister city. Our city council would be pleased to have all city leaders together as well for a ceremony.

Brandonberg's population is currently 978,627, Metro: 1,222,022

This is a population table of historical populations;

Looks like your city is doing GREAT, Bradly. Clintondale, on the other hand, not so much. It has the fastest declining population in the nation, with an estimated 200-300 people fleeing the city every week. Thats a loss of 15,000 people per year. But, yes, Clintondale would love to have Brandonberg as a sister city. Just be sure to include that in your next newspaper.

And, since you gave me a list of your city's leaders, I may as well do the same for you.

Mayor: Kathy Lambert (D)
Mayor Lambert will be succeeded by District 7 Councillor Andrew Gibson in December

City Council President Lamar Johnson (D)
City Council Vice PresidentHilliard Woods (D)
District 3Morgan Cassil (D)
District 4 David Dayne (R)
District 5 Paige Sims (D)
District 6 Kwame Watson (D)
District 7 Andrew Gibson (R)
District 8 Marquis Washington (R)
District 9 Ron Archer (D)
District 10 Monica Carter (D)
District 11 Gloria Gutierrez (D)
District 12 Shirley Wilkins (D)
District 13 Dennis Young (D)
District 14 Gary Brown (D)
District 15 Brandon Glidden (R)
District 16 Valerie Cronin (D)
District 17 Alexis White (R)
District 18 James Beebe, Jr. (D)
District 19 Taylor Sparks (R)
District 20 Winston Dempsey (D)

As you can see, City Council is VERY Democratic, which is why Mayor-Elect Gibson's win was surprising to many.
