Businessman Oscar Leeser has been elected to serve as the next mayor for El Paso.

On Saturday, voters in El Paso ousted incumbent Mayor Dee Margo to elect Hyundai dealership president and former mayor Oscar Lesser to lead the city. According to unofficial results, Leeser pulled in almost 80 percent of the vote to Margo’s 20 percent. Lesser swept every precinct in the city, with the exception of one — Precinct 189 reported only one vote, which went for Margo.

Following the victory, the newly elected mayor said he was excited about the result.

“It’s an exciting night for El Paso, 80% of the voters voted for a change and I’m so excited,” Lesser told KVIA-TV in El Paso.

In addition to electing Leeser, voters in El Paso also re-elected Precinct 2 City Council member Alexsandra Annello and ousted incumbent Sam Morgan in Precinct 4. Taking Morgan’s seat will be Joe Molinar.
