By JOYANNA LOVE/ Managing Editor

Chilton County municipalities held local elections Aug. 25.

Mayoral races in Clanton and Thorsby were potentially some of the most watched races. Clanton has had the same mayor for 36 years, and the Thorsby race was the most contested race with four candidates running. Jeff Mims will take on the position of mayor for Clanton.
