Beaumont City Council today voted unanimously to adopt an ordinance calling for an election on May 4 to elect the mayor and six council members.

Mayor Becky Ames, at-large council members W. L. Pate, Jr. and Bill Sam, and council members Virginia Jordan, Mike Getz, Audwin Samuel and Robin Mouton, who represent Wards 1, 2, 3 and 4, respectively, have terms expiring in May.
