Toms River has a new mayor for the first time in 12 years. Republican Mo Hill narrowly defeated Democrat Jonathan Petro.

Hill said that his political experience made him the best man for the job.
“I've got the experience and ability to lead this town forward in a positive direction,” he said Tuesday prior to the election results coming in.
Hill has served on the Toms River Town Council for over 15 years.
