With 130 votes cast, residents of Mount Sterling have voted to elect William (Billy) Martin as mayor of the village. Martin will replace Lowell Anderson who became mayor after the resignation of former mayor, Charles Neff.
He beat out two other candidates, Dustin Parker who had 88 and current village councilwoman, Diane Spradlin who had 101 votes. Martin, retired from Mead Corp and seven years ago, became Post Manager at Post No. 417 with the Mt. Sterling American Legion. He also has been President of the Chamber of Commerce for two years.
Much of Martin’s campaign ran on a position of honesty and transparency in government. In the wake of controversy surrounding the village council, Martin said he felt it important to restore the community’s faith in its governing body and to “bring integrity back to my community after many years of dishonest and back door deals.”
He also said he would, “Work to make my community as it used to be, honest, compassionate and proud.” Martin had previously been a member of village council, having held the seat for four years.
Village workers began installing new street name signs on August 14th, 2017. The new signs are reflective and much larger than the old signs of the past. The new street sign project should be completed in the next couple of weeks. Pictured is Village employee
