Additionally, Ward 6 Councilwoman Grace Amos had many thanks to voters, with eyes also towards the future. 

"During my campaign, I enjoyed getting out and working with my constituents in Ward 6. They supported me in my last election and they came out today to re-elect me. I am excited to work with our newly elected City Council. There is much work to be done in the city of Laurel. I believe that the seven City Council members can come together and form a master plan to enhance the city of Laurel."
