Blalock Elected Mayor Of Portsmouth
The city of Portsmouth has a new mayor.
Jack Blalock claimed victory Tuesday as the top vote-getter among the candidates running for city council.
He replaces Robert Lister, who did not run for re-election.
Blalock formerly served as assistant mayor of Portsmouth and chairman of the city’s Board of Adjustment.
Assistant Mayor Jim Splaine will return to that position, after receiving the second-most votes in yesterday’s election.
