Pantelides Elected Mayor Of Annapolis

Republican Mike Pantelides won the Annapolis mayoral election after a count of provisional and absentee ballots Friday night. 

The 30-year-old mayor-elect defeated incumbent Josh Cohen by fewer than 60 votes. 

The race was called Friday night after elections officials spent more than 24 hours counting the ballots. With the initial tally, the race was too close to call and put Pantelides only 84 votes ahead of incumbent Josh Cohen. 

According to the Baltimore Sun, Pantelides says he'll bring a more business-like mentality to city hall and wants to turn around the city's finances.
