Biloxi Votes for New Mayor Tuesday

BILOXI, Miss.- The city of Biloxi will vote for a new mayor Tuesday for the first time in 22 years.

There were 10 candidates that ran in the April 28 election calling for a runoff. Andrew Gilich won 29 percent of the votes and Winfield Swetman won 22 percent to get into the runoff position.

Swetman tells The Sun Herald he sees growing the economy and diversifying family entertainment as the key issues.

Gilich says economic development and developing Biloxi as a brand are key to bringing more jobs to the city.

The new mayor will be paid an annual salary of nearly $116,000, will get a car to use and receive health insurance and other benefits.
