Full results from Birmingham municipal election
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin was re-elected to a second term Tuesday. Woodfin received more than 64% of the vote, avoiding a runoff.
Just before he took the stage at his election watch party, Woodfin received a call from former Mayor William Bell congratulating him on the race. Woodfin held onto a commanding lead all night.
As soon as Woodfin took the stage, his supporters started yelling ‘four more years’. Woodfin told the crowd 4 years ago the city deserved better. He says since then, they’ve invested in people and the community.
“You told us to invest in your neighborhoods and we did. You told us to pave more streets and we did. You told us to tear down this blight, we did. You told us to invest in our youngest generation and we did with the Birmingham Promise. My commitment and sense of urgency will be the same over the next four years,” Mayor Woodfin said.
Woodfin says now his focus is on Vision 2025, a plan to move the city forward over the next four years.
Birmingham voters went to the polls Tuesday, August 24, 2021, to decide on mayor, city council and school board members.
