Don Kyle was elected Decatur's new mayor tonight, capturing 56 percent of the vote.
Kyle had 5,587 votes to Cole's 4,432, a 1,155-vote margin.
Voters in District 5 chose Chuck Ard over Allison Blackburn Akins for their council seat.
Ard received 1,597 votes (64 percent) to Akins' 913.
Kyle, who will take office Nov. 5, had a previous four-year term as mayor that ended in 2008.
Current mayor Don Stanford was on the Aug. 28 ballot but didn't finish as one of the top two vote recipients and qualify for the runoff.
