Leona Plaugh, former Columbia city manager, is headed back to City Hall.
In Tuesday?s runoff, Plaugh defeated former Richland County Councilman Tony Mizzell, to represent District 4, the city?s most fiscally conservative and affluent district.
?This is really a victory for the taxpayers,? Plaugh said tonight. ?This is a victory for the people who live in district 4 and the people who have opened their hearts and believed in me.?
Plaugh defeated Mizzell 3,117 votes to 2,824 votes in unofficial counting.
