James Watts will take the reins in Rockwood as mayor on July 1, when current Mayor Mike “Brillo” Miller’s term will end.
Watts, a current councilman, sought the seat along with John Sublett and Calvin Trew.
Watts took 362 votes, Sublett had 232 and Trew had 77.
Watts said he was humbled by the results.
“I’m thankful for the voters in Rockwood having the confidence in me,” he said.
