NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Newport News voters saw highly-contested races for local offices. In the battle for the mayorship, Phillip Jones — the lone contender not currently on city council — came out victorious.  Meanwhile, the race for city council featured no incumbents in the running, which means there are now brand-new members coming to the Newport News City Council. Curtis Bethany III in the North District, as well as Cleon Long in the Central District have come up on top with all but one precinct reporting, according to the Virginia Department of Elections late Tuesday night.
