   The Andrews Board of Aldermen has a new face. 

   Unofficial results have Jonathan Ellison and Mike Sheidy as the top two vote-getters in the municipal election and each will serve a 4-year term.

   Ellison, who served as an alternate on the Andrews Planning and Zoning Board, received 91 votes. He will have to leave his position on the planning board. 

   Sheidy, who was elected to a 2-year term in 2017, received the most votes this year with 94 city residents deciding that he should retain his seat. 

   The two aldermen will take the oath of office on Dec. 10. 

   Jim Bristol, Randy Hogsed and Ronald Clontz received 55, 36 and 36 votes respectively.
