OPELIKA, Ala. (WTVM) - The votes are in and the City of Opelika has elected a new city council representative for Ward 3.

Timothy Aja claimed the Ward 3 council seat with 57.9% of the vote.

Aja grew up in Maryland. He currently owns an investment advisory firm and is a commanding officer in the Navy Reserve. He also serves as an ambassador of the Opelika Chamber of Commerce.

News Leader 9 spoke to Aja about the election and his plans for the City of Opelika.

”Number 1 - we had a great slate of candidates running. I truly hope to get to work with them,” said Aja. “Thank you very much for electing me. I look very forward to being your councilman and helping this city grow for the next few years and hopefully for a long time to come.”

Aja says there are four main things he will focus in his new role: Continuing the growth, enhancing and improving the use of Floral Park, making basic financial education available to everyone, and renovating the Indian Pines Golf Course.

Aja beat out three other candidates - Winford Ashmore, Terry Hanners, and Sherri Reese - for the council seat.
