Prattville Mayor Bill Gillespie Elected to First Full Term


By Tamika Bickham

It was a huge win Tuesday night for incumbent mayor, Bill Gillespie. After serving the city for one year and a half, Gillespie has won his first elected full term as mayor.

There were four candidates, but one very clear winner for Prattville's top spot.

The ballots were counted and with just under 70 percent of the vote, Mayor Bill Gillespie will continue to serve the citizens of Prattville.

Gillespie says he's speechless, but very honored by the support of so many Prattville residents. He says now he has a lot to live up to.

"It's been a long hard 18 months. It's been very rewarding to see some of the numbers come up there because I think the one thing that Prattville has really done is we've pulled together."

After his win, Gillespie said he followed in his father's footsteps and pursued serving as a city councilman, although he said his father cautioned against it. He said his goal was to serve two terms on the council, and now it's to serve two terms as mayor.
