Birmingham city attorney and school board member Randall Woodfin has a new title he can add to his resume: mayor-elect. Woodfin defeated Mayor William Bell in a municipal runoff election Tuesday. It represents a generational change as the 36-year-old Woodfin is set to become the city’s youngest mayor in more than 120 years. WBHM’s Andrew Yeager talks about that race and other results from the election with WBHM’s local government reporter Sherrel Wheeler Stewart.
