Hodges elects Terry Petree as mayor

In Hodges, only one race was contested in Tuesday’s election, but it was the race many would consider the biggest: the race for mayor.

Hodges selected Terry Petree as its next mayor. He won over Danny Avery and Wendell Williford, by 58 votes to Avery’s 35 and Williford’s 9.

“We’re going to try to do the best we can,” Petree said. He said he appreciated everyone voting for him. “I just want to see our town grow and do better for the community and stuff. I’ve always liked helping people. I felt like we need somebody who cares for the town and wants to do good things for the town. I hope our town grows.”

Petree said he figured it would be a close race, but he was thankful to come out on top.

Petree follows Mayor Ed Crouch, who did not run for re-election.
