Daniel McArthur, mayor of St. George for a generation, finally came to the end of his long run Tuesday night.
Councilman Jon Pike beat McArthur by a convincing margin 61 percent to 39 percent in the municipal election.
Pike is a SelectHealth executive and also vice chairman of Dixie State University's board. He has promised to scrutinize city operations to ensure maximum efficiency. Pike also has said it is time to develop a new strategic plan for the future.
