DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) – With current Delphi Mayor Randy Strasser upset in the primaries, it was a battle of three new faces on the ballot. But Tuesday Delphi residents have spoken, and Independent Shane Evans has been elected the new mayor of Delphi.
Evans unofficially won the race with 321 votes, or 55 percent. He beat out Democrat Jack Wilson, who got 146 votes, and Republican Louis Hayden, who received 114 votes.
Incumbent Strasser lost in the Democratic mayoral primary to Wilson. Strasser was seeking his third term.
In the May primary, Hayden defeated his three opponents — Wally Dellenbach, Larry Jenkins Jr. and Andrew Royal.
In June, Evans decided to join the race as an Independent and from the looks of it it was a good choice.
