Shameka Reynolds swept the Lithonia mayoral race Tuesday, soundly defeating challenger Cindy Thomas.

Reynolds, who served on the City Council for eight years, won the election with 245 (60.95 percent) votes while Cindy Thomas garnered 157 (39.05 percent) votes in the two-way race, according to early results which must be certified.

The crowd cheered at Reynolds’ victory party, which was held at the Stone Manor event center.

“I feel great. I thank God for the victory. The Devil tried it, but he didn’t win. I want to thank the city of Lithonia for supporting me. We are about to make the city of Lithonia great,” Reynolds said excitedly as supporters cheered in the background.

The mayoral election heated up last week as the Secretary of State’s office launched an investigation into allegations of address fraud against Thomas. Councilman Ric Dodd asked for the inquiry, saying Thomas had not lived in the city for the required time when she qualified to run. An investigator was in the city on Tuesday monitoring the elections, citizens told On Common Ground News.

Thomas’ campaign manager, John Jackson, has refuted the allegations, saying Thomas met the requirements.

Also, Darold Honore and Vannaeriah Hawk-Wynn were elected to the City Council.
