Henderson voters gave Councilwoman Debra March a promotion to be mayor of Nevada’s second largest city.
She won 55 percent of the vote in a seven-way race, and because she received a majority, there’s no need for a runoff in the June general election.
March, who first joined the council in 2009, campaigned on her experience, which includes heading the Lied Institute of Real Estate Studies at UNLV.
She also led the Southern Nevada Strong regional planning effort and serves as vice chairwoman of the Regional Transportation Commission.
When she’s sworn in later this spring she will become the city’s second female mayor.
