Brandy Hawkins Boies won the single contested mayoral election in Shenandoah County on Tuesday, picking up 44% of the vote to unseat incumbent Richard Orndorff Jr. 

Boies received 478 votes out of the 1,084 votes cast on Tuesday, according to unofficial results posted by the department of elections. 

Town hall will have a new mayor and a fresh-faced Town Council as four of the members whose term expires next month did not seek reelection. 

Five Strasburg residents competed for the four empty seats. 

Paul M. Weaver received the largest share of votes (21.78%) totaling 699 votes. Dane M. Hooser won the second seat with 659 votes; Doreen Pauley Ricard won the third seat with 646 votes and Christie A. Monahan won the final seat with 645 votes. 

Strasburg voters cast 38 ballots for write-in candidates for Town Council.
