After months of uncertainty, Sturgeon residents have finally selected a winner.

Danny Joiner won Sturgeon's runoff election by 29 votes Tuesday, after tying with incumbent Paul Heywood in the April 3 election.

Tuesday's election had seven more voters than the April 3 election, which ended in a 143-143 tie. On Tuesday, 161 people voted for Joiner and 132 for Heywood.
