Christiansen Elected Mayor of Dover

DOVER, Del. (WBOC) - Robin Christiansen has been elected the new mayor of Dover.

Christiansen won Tuesday's special election with 39 percent of the vote. There were four other candidates. Dave Anderson, a city councilman, finished second with 31 percent. R. Jefferson Reed picked up 11.7 percent of the vote, James Webster 11.2 percent and Chevis Anderson got 6 percent of the vote.

Christiansen was a member of city council for 18 years. He was council president 11 of those years. 

The need for a special election in Dover arose earlier this spring when former Mayor Carleton Carey abruptly resigned. Later it came out that resignation may have been connected to allegations of meddling in the selection process for the police department's new deputy chief.

Dave Bonar, president of the city council, has served as acting mayor since Carey left office.
