ZIONSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Emily Styron was sworn in as the town’s first-ever elected mayor.
She won by a very small margin over the Republican incumbent.
Styron also became the town’s first female mayor and the first Democratic Party mayor in a town that’s been solidly Republican.
Styron told supporters she would work to balance “managing the town’s responsibilities while maintaining our community’s treasured sense of place.”
