Metropolis, Illinois voters re-elected mayor Billy McDaniel in a local election Tuesday night. McDaniel said on Facebook he is "honored to serve the people of Metropolis for another four years." 

He faced challengers Julian 'Butch' Adams, Richard Corzine Jr. and David McManus.

In a forum last month, McDaniel said most of the city's challenges stem from state budget issues. He suggested the city find funding via grants and low interest loans. He also said further developing a grant matching program could attract and retain local business.
