It’s time to call retired Air Force colonel Kenny Weldon Mayor after his victory over former Mayor Nancy Hunter. Weldon won 68.66% of the 2,077 votes cast in the election. After the announcement that Weldon would take the seat, while at the Stephenville City Council, he praised all of the residents who turned out to vote.
He said, “I first want to thank everyone for turning out to vote and exercising their right to vote. That’s what makes this country so special.” Weldon also gave praises to everyone who helped out during his campaign. “The group really came together as a team,” he added.
Weldon told voters that he was humbled by the experience. “I am excited about the opportunity that was presented to me,” said Weldon. “I realize it is a privilege and I am humbled by the turnout and understand I am ready to go to work for the community. I will work as hard as I can to earn everyone’s trust and keep that trust.”
Both participants in the race for Mayor reacted to the results with class and respect for their community. Hunter, who had served as mayor during the two prior terms, reassured residents that she would continue to work as a city servant, regardless of the outcome of the vote.
She said, “I want to thank everyone that came out to vote. The turnout is a great testament to community involvement. Stephenville is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family. I continue to be proud to call Stephenville my home.”
