LANDIS — Former Landis Mayor and now alderman, Dennis Brown, is seeking four more years in office, he says to finish projects the board started. Brown, 58, who is seeking re-election to the board of alderman, is finishing out current Mayor James Furr’s term.
Brown was unseated in a roller coaster of a mayoral race with Furr, who eventually won by two votes. At the end of the 2011 campaign, the two were tied, each with 195 votes. The votes were recounted bringing Brown up by one vote and following a hand count the two were tied once again. The tie was broken when provisional ballots were counted days after the election.
