Incumbent Mayor Tommy Longo will continue to lead the recovery effort in Waveland. Voters Tuesday re-elected Longo as their mayor. He beat out Republican Craig Cameron, a former construction manager, and Independent Santo Saucier, a former Waveland Alderman.
Longo received a total of 584 votes. Santo Saucier came in second with 252 votes, and Republican Craig Cameron received 214 votes.
For the past 15 months, Mayor Longo has led Waveland through a tedious recovery effort after Hurricane Katrina practically destroyed his city. He still has a huge task ahead of him, as people continue to try and put their lives back together, under his leadership. He is the first South Mississippi mayor to be re-elected since Hurricane Katrina.

Lili Stahler, 218
