Hamilton wins at-large race in Pembroke
Pembroke campaign 2696
Pembroke City Council at-large candidate Ernest Hamilton, left, campaigns with Elaine Webster, Vincent Conley and Laverne Scott on Main Street in Pembroke Tuesday morning.

Ernest Hamilton is back on the Pembroke City Council, and the town will have a new mayor for the first time in 12 years when the new year rolls around.
Hamilton, the Pembroke-native and former public works director, beat Doug Kangeter for the council’s at-large seat by a 256-153 margin Tuesday night, according to unofficial results from the Bryan County Voter Registration Office. Results are not considered official until certified by the Secretary of State.
Mary Warnell ran unopposed for mayor and will replace Judy Cook, who decided not to run again after serving three terms.
