Mayor Chuck Shaheen and CouncilmanMike Daley are headed for a runoff election for Warner Robins's City Council Post 1 seat.

Shaheen received 50 percent of the vote to Daley's 28 percent. Daley is the incumbent in the race. The runoff electionis Dec. 3.

When asked about how he plans to transition from a mayoral seat to a council seat, Shaheen says it's not about the title.

"It doesn't matter if you're the coach, assistant coach or a player. It's about the team. It's a team concept," Shaheen said. "I've said this from the beginning. It's about serving the citizens of Warner Robins. It's not about one person, whether that's the mayor or councilman."

Shaheen also said his campaign strategy will stay the same for the December election.

"We'll do the same thing we always do. Grassroots campaign, door-to-door," Shaheen said. "I'll pray every day."

He also said his experience as mayor will allow him to better serve as a councilman.

"I think what the people have seen for the last four years is, I've really tried to make us have a positive image for our city," Shaheen said. "Really tried to bring [Robins Air Force Base] in and think regionally."

Councilman Daley, who currently holds the Council Post 1 seat, was not at City Hall on Tuesday night and did not respond to multiple phone calls for comment.
