Jan Moore has defeated Jonathan McCollar 980-887 in Tuesday's runoff election.

"Again, I'm humbled by the response and I'm grateful by all the support that I have been given. I think Statesboro's a great place to live. I was born and raised here and brought my family back here. I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather live." said Moore.
