The city of North Las Vegas is getting a new mayor.
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, challenger John Lee has won the race for mayor with a little more than 53 percent of the vote.
Lee defeated incumbent Shari Buck, who garnered 35 percent of the municipal primary vote.
Because Lee got more than 50 percent of the vote, there is no need for a runoff election during the general election in June.
North Las Vegas has been struggling with budget problems in recent years, reducing city staff and services. Recreation centers, libraries and public safety services all weathered cuts in the last year.
