Tye, Marsalis in runoff for Ripley mayor's office

RIPLEY — Breat Tye and Chris Marsalis will participate in the Feb. 28 runoff for mayor of Ripley.

After affidavit ballots were counted yesterday and the election certified, Tye had 262 votes to 244 for Marsalis.

Nine candidates were on the Tuesday ballot.

City election officials had to switch to paper ballots Tuesday after Tye discovered about an hour after polls opened that his name had been left off the ballot used by electronic voting machines.

The winner will serve the remaining term of Kerri Hill, who died in December.
