HUNTINGTON, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- There will be a new man running the city of Huntington in January.

Republican businessman Brooks Fetters beat the democrat and independent candidates for mayor by a wide margin.

Fetters beat out five people, including incumbent Mayor Steve Updike, in the May primary.

The Mayor-Elect says his platform has three main ideas, “Attracting and retaining livable wage jobs that support families that live here in our community. Secondly, I've said all along that we need to operate the City Operations in a more efficient way, make sure we're providing essential services with a quality experience to our citizens and doing it in the most cost-effective manner.”

Fetters says the third thing he wants to do is enhance every neighborhood in the city by reaching out to different groups and neighborhoods for ideas.
