The results are unofficial, but early numbers indicate that the city of Indianola will have a new mayor.
With absentee and curbside votes counted on Tuesday night, Ken Featherstone led incumbent mayor Steve Rosenthal 1,420 to 882.
Rosenthal has been Indianola’s mayor for the past 12 years.
Featherstone described his feeling as “humbled” speaking to The Enterprise-Tocsin just after the unofficial results came in at the Sunflower County Courthouse.
Without absentee, Ruben Woods led Toniesha Jones 257-215; Marvin Elder led in Ward 4 with 202 votes to Dreifus Smith’s 160 and Jessica James Everett’s 59; and Sam Brock led in Ward 5 with 212 to Carolyn McCarty’s 158 and Rosland Love’s 27.
