Yadkinville Mayor Eddie Norman was reelected last week, beating out competitor Jacob Wagoner. Norman received 96 votes and Wagoner 43 votes.

“I want to tell the constituents that I really appreciate their support,” Norman said. “I feel very blessed because I got supported by the people.”

Norman said he was ready to continue the work happening in the town of Yadkinville.

“I think it’s a vote for the town of Yadkinville as we’re progressing down the path of revitalizing downtown and making some good and sound decisions for our future growth,” Norman said.

He also noted the reelection of fellow board members Chris Matthews and Scott Winebarger.

“They have a great vision for the town. I think we have a great sitting board now that’s very focused on the growth of our town,” he said.

Matthews and Winebarger ran unopposed. Matthews received 117 votes and Winebarger 108 votes.

“I would like to truly thank the citizens of Yadkinville that were able to come out and vote. I am proud and impressed with the concern and support of our town. Our people are the best,” said Matthews.

“I will strive to continue to work with the Yadkinville town board, the manager, staff and other boards on growing our town with new businesses, downtown revitalization, job growth and getting our citizens involved. It will be an honor to serve and I encourage all citizens to get involved as much as possible,” Matthews said.
