Bobby Long will fill the vacant Jonesboro city councilman seat.

Long won the runoff election Tuesday with 53.71 percent of the vote compared to Richard Wang’s 46.29 percent, according to Craighead County Clerk Kade Holliday. 

Those are the unofficial results.

Long will take the Ward 6 seat that Tim McCall vacated earlier this year.
