Voters in DeKalb's newest city chose the first mayor and council members in yesterday's runoff elections.

J. Max Davis was elected as Brookhaven's first mayor by a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent against opposer Sandy Murray. 

Joining Jim Eyre, who was elected last month on Nov. 6 as the District 2 council member, Rebecca Chase Williams won the District 1 seat, defeating Kevin Fitzpatrick by the same margin, 66 percent to 34 percent.

In District 3, Bates Mattison was elected 53 percent to 47 percent against Kevin Quirk.

To complete the city's first council, Joe Gebbia won the District 4 seat, taking 81 percent of the vote against Karen Lord.

The newly-elected council members and mayor must work quickly with a deadline of Dec. 17 – the day the city is to begin operations.
