BIRMINGHAM — Randall Woodfin won 64 percent of the vote in a crowded field that included former mayor William Bell to claim re-election as the mayor of Birmingham.
Woodfin, 40, won a runoff in October of 2017 against Bell to win his first term in office.
“You told us to invest in your neighborhoods and we did,” Woodfin said. “You told us to pave your streets and we did…You told us to invest in the youngest generation and we did … my commitment and sense of urgency will be the same over the next four years.”
Speaking to supporters, the Mayor thanked residents, volunteers and his family for their support and pledged to continue making progress across all 99 neighborhoods in a second term through his Vision 2025 plan.
“Four years ago my campaign knocked on over 50,000 doors — in this campaign, we knocked on over 80,000 doors,” Woodfin said. “I couldn’t be more proud of our incredible team and the hard work they’ve put in to make another four years of progress possible for Birmingham.”
