BAY HEAD — The Bay Head Borough Council will welcome a new member to the dais this January.

On Election Day Nov. 5, Republican incumbent Mayor William Curtis and incumbent Councilman Doug Lyons were re-elected to new terms, while first-time candidate Holly MacPherson secured election to her first term on the governing body. The candidates ran uncontested in Tuesday’s General Election.

“I am very honored and pleased to be re-elected to another term. I have enjoyed working for the people of Bay Head and want to continue doing exactly the same things that I have done all along,” Mayor Curtis said Wednesday.

According to unofficial results posted on the Ocean County Clerk’s website, as of Wednesday, Nov. 6, with one district reporting, Mayor Curtis received 273 votes or 100 percent of the vote.

Mayor Curtis will be sworn into his fourth, four-year term this January.

“We have some new people … so Doug and I are go- ing to get together and figure out a plan to rearrange some of the committees and see where everybody can work the best and if it doesn’t quite t we’ll change them during the year but that is one of the first steps that we are going to do, to see where Holly can t in and help us the most,” Mayor Curtis said.

“I am thrilled to be working with Holly and Doug again, of course. I can’t speak highly enough of both of them and I am really excited about getting started for next year because I think we have some big things going.”
