The Houston County School Board got a new member Tuesday.
Dave McMahan will fill Toby Hill's District 7 seat, because Hill did not seek re-election.
Griff Clements, Dave McMahan and Andy Rodriguez were all vying for the open chair, but only one walked away with the seat.
13WMAZ's Jennifer Moulliet caught up with friends and supporters of Dave McMahan at Rusty's in downtown Perry. The restaurant served as McMahan's campaign headquarters. Even Mayor Jimmy Faircloth showed his support.
Across the street, the Board of Election employees tallied the votes. Soon the votes were in for all twenty-three precincts.
McMahan received 6,884 votes and won the race with 50.53%.
