RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) - Greggory Hull will be Rio Rancho's new mayor.
City voters chose Hull over Michael Williams for a four-year term as mayor of the Albuquerque suburb in Tuesday's runoff election.
According to unofficial results released by the city, Hull had 4,250 votes while Williams had just under 2,300 votes.
The election results in the mayor's race will be canvassed by a Sandoval County judge on Friday. The swearing-in is scheduled for April 21.
Hull and Williams advanced to runoff from the March 4 election during which two other candidates were eliminated.
Incumbent Mayor Thomas Swisstack is leaving office.
