Tom Cole chosen as Bluefield's mayor-elect

BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - The city of Bluefield's incoming Board of Directors has named Tom Cole the mayor-elect.

City Clerk Bobbi Kersey tells WVVA News the newly-elected board members met Thursday to choose the new mayor and vice mayor, which will be Barbara Thompson Smith.

Cole was selected by unanimous vote. He and Smith -- along with Ellen Peters Light, Michael Gibson and Chuck McGonagle -- were chosen by voters in a clean sweep of incumbents during city elections last week.

State law requires a new board to select its mayor within 10 days of the election.

The new group will officially be sworn-in in August.
