EMBARRASSING: Richard Showers lost every voting precinct, including the one named after him…

Upstart Devyn Keith beat Richard Showers

For the first time in more than a quarter-century, voters in north Huntsville have chosen a new voice to represent them on the city council.

Councilman Richard Showers, seeking an 8th term on the council, lost Tuesday to Devyn Keith in the District 1 runoff.

Keith won in a landslide, collecting 69 percent of the vote in unofficial results.

We all saw that coming.

What we didn’t see is this…

You know it’s a disappointing night for Showers when he loses a voting precinct at the recreational center that bears his name. Keith got 316 votes at the Dr. Richard Showers Center while Showers got just 154 votes.

That’s sad.

Reminder: Richard Showers needed to go a long time ago.
