Henderson City Councilwoman Debra March celebrated with hundreds of her closest supporters Tuesday as she cruised to a convincing victory in the city’s mayoral race.
With 100 percent of the ballots counted, March received more than 55 percent of the vote.
“This is our win. It’s not just my win,” March said at her election results watch party at the Henderson Convention Center, although ballots were still being counted. “Truly this is a win for all of us. It was a hard and difficult campaign due to misinformation that was spread. I stayed true to my values, and I feel strong about my vision for Henderson and Henderson Strong.”
March, 63, was met with loud applause and cheers from supporters, including outgoing term-limited Mayor Andy Hafen and City Councilmembers Gerri Schroder and Dan Stewart.
She was appointed to the Henderson City Council in 2009 and was elected in 2011 and re-elected in 2015.
