Nathan Gaskin has claimed his seat on the LaGrange City Council for a second term.

Gaskin, who holds the seat for District 2A, won 361 votes out of the 619 votes cast in Tuesday’s municipal election, or 58.32% of the votes overall.

“I have proven that I have the skills and the ability, and I have the talent to win over the people of LaGrange, and they saw fit to re-elect me,” Gaskin said. “I’m extremely grateful and humble and thankful to God to have the opportunity to serve the people of this community another four years.”

Mayor Jim Thornton and council incumbents Tom Gore and Jim Arrington were also re-elected in unopposed elections.
