CHIPLEY - There will soon be a new face on Chipley City Council. Tracy Andrews narrowly defeated Ward 3 incumbent Lee Dell Kennedy Tuesday 182-176 with just 358 of the city's approximate 2,300 voters turning out.

Andrews says she is "looking forward to the journey."

"I'm just grateful unto God for this blessing and thankful to all those who supported me," said Andrews after the election results were read. "I'm excited about working for the citizens and about being challenged in new areas in my life. I'm looking forward to the journey."

Andrews will be sworn in when Chipley City Council meets in regular session October 9.
