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.
