Byrley succeeds Schofield as Palestine mayor
Daily News

Palestine will soon have a new mayor following the election of Rob Byrley in Tuesday's consolidated election.

Byrley won 87.88 percent (232) of the votes cast in the election over his challenger Francis Doyle Murphy, who netted 12.12 percent (32) of the votes.

Although he will be new to the mayor's office, Byrley is not new to the village board of trustees. He has served on the village board for nearly three years after assuming the unexpired term of Greta Dennison following her retirement from the board.

Voters in Palestine also voted to retain three trustees on the village board.

Long-time board members Harry Gene Purcell won 35.47 percent (210) of the votes cast and JR Dunlap got 33.28 percent (197).

Mary Michael, who has served on the board since 2016, got 31.25 percent (185) of the votes in Tuesday's election.
