The City of Magazine will soon have a new face in mayor’s office. The citizens of Magazine have elected Josh Scott to serve as the next Mayor of Magazine.  Scott defeated Donald West in Tuesday’s election. Stanley McConnell, the current Mayor, did not seek reelection.

Scott is a 1999 graduate of JD Leftwich High School in Magazine. He served in the United States Navy for 8 years, and currently serves as the Chief Deputy of the Logan County Sherriff’s Office. Scott has spent countless hours volunteering his time in the community, working with little league football, junior high and high school football, and is the “Top Dog” with the Watch D.O.G.S program at Magazine Elementary which helps provide students with positive male role models. 

Scott’s plan for the city is to “bring people together.” He stated in a recent interview that Magazine has many great resources in its citizens and alumni, and he hopes to get everyone more involved. He believes Magazine “needs someone who can organize all of the resources that we have,” and “take care of little things that we see that need attention.” Scott believes he has the energy and passion needed to lead Magazine forward. 

We wish Mayor-Elect Scott all the best as he begins this new chapter.
