Newcomer wins Gray mayoral race

Jones County has a new mayor. Stephen Tingen beat incumbent Gus Wilson by more than 100 votes.

The Gray mayor

is a part time position that supervises city departments.

But Tingen is ready to focus on Gray by increasing school and community involvement. That's one of the reasons why Tingen believes he won.

"Do my part to make it safe as possible. Do my part to bring the schools in to all the city sponsored activities. All those things brought together will make us a stronger community," Tingen said.

The Gray mayor is a part time position that supervises city departments. Tingen also runs a transportation business from home.

We were unable to reach the mayor. A city official said Wilson was out of town. Tingen said he has yet to hear from Wilson.
