MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - New leadership is making its way to the town of Marion. Larry Gill is the projected mayor-elect with 227 votes.

Lisa Lindley had 97 votes and Eric Johnson with 95.

Gill celebrated his win with an election party for friends and family.

Gill says he has worked hard over the past few months to prove to voters he is the right choice.

He says he cannot wait to get in office to learn processes and procedures.

“We’re going to listen to our personnel and make sure that we’re doing everything we can to make Marion as innovative as possible.” Gill said, “My first few months in office, I want to make sure that we learn. That is the biggest piece of it. We are going to learn and listen to people. We’re going to try to make the best decisions for Marion over the next few weeks.”

Gill says his win would not be possible without God, his family and supporters.
