WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

The city of Wichita Falls has spoken this election. 14,056 people cast their ballot for Stephen Santellana. The mayor-elect will be sworn in on November 22nd. 

"I am very excited to help run the city," Santellana said. 

He immediately wants to get the ball rolling on his top priority. 

"Getting with the Chamber of Commerce and other entities and really trying to get a good, focused plan for the future and what we're going to do here in downtown and bring in jobs and industry," he said. 

He wants to make sure businesses and industries that are already housed in Wichita Falls, stay here. Santellana wants to strengthen those relationships which he said will help bring more businesses to the city. 

"They're here already. I think right now PPG (is) looking to do some things and we'll maybe help them out with that and see if we can get a little job growth," he said. 

Santellana beat his opponent Tim Ingle by a little more than 5,000 votes. 

"(That) tells me right off the bat that the city is ready to be progressive in its thought," Santellana said. 

He believes the voters have a different vision for the city and hope he is the man to help make it a reality.
