SHEPHERDSVILLE - Despite a flood of opinions over the recent release of flood elevation maps, mayor Scott Ellis has won a second term.
Ellis defeated councilmember Faith Portman 1,347 to 1,105. Independent candidate Sherman Tinnell collected 707 votes.
“I expected it to be a close race,” said Ellis. “You always worry.”
He said having two other candidates was a concern, as was the finger-pointing which has occurred since the release of the FEMA flood maps.
