Residents of Huntington have voted, and they will have a new mayor for the new year. Councilman Steve Williams defeated incumbent Kim Wolfe by about 3,000 votes.
Wednesday morning, he met with city police, firefighters and the Marshall University President Stephen Kopp.
"We were able to talk about a similar vision we have. Clearly, you see how much Marshall has grown and Huntington needs to be going in a similar fashion," Mayor-Elect Steve Williams said. "About any city I've ever seen that is truly vibrant has an active partnership with its local university."
Williams also told Eyewitness News that he does not plan to replace anyone in the current administration.
