WAVELAND, Miss. (AP) - Candidates for Waveland’s mayor and board of aldermen have been going door-to-door as the election nears.

WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/1rJK5BJ ) reports that elections are Tuesday and the new city leaders will take office Wednesday.

Republican businessman Jay Trapani and longtime Fire Chief Mike Smith, a Democrat, are in the mayoral race.

Trapani was unopposed in the Republican primary. He says he’s been a successful businessman for 32 years, and a city is alike a business in which the bottom line is not profit but service.

Smith had to win a runoff for the Democratic nomination. He says he’s spent 27 years in many parts of Waveland’s government, and has been working directly with the mayor and aldermen for the last four years.
