Washington Park elects new mayor

(KMOV)-- Washington Park has a new mayor Wednesday afternoon sworn in more than a year after voters cast their ballots for him.

A St. Clair County judge ruled this week that James Jones was the rightful winner of the April 2009 election.

Former Mayor John Thornton Sr. who was shot to death earlier this year in an unrelated case was originally named the winner.

Jones challenged the results, citing voting irregularities.
