Armstrong elected Alexandria mayor
b a III
Alexandria has a new mayor. Bennett Armstrong came out on top in the Alexandria mayor’s race Thursday, defeating incumbent Tony Tarpley 60 votes to 35. Armstrong will finish the two-year remainder of the unexpired term of Jim York, who was elected to the office in 2013, but resigned three days later because of disagreements with the board of aldermen.
