KERRVILLE, Texas (AP) The mayor of a Central Texas city has lost his re-election bid by 25 votes.

Election officials say Jack Pratt defeated Kerrville Mayor David Wampler 888 votes to 863 votes.

Wampler, who works for an investment management firm, was seeking his second term Saturday.

Pratt, who's expected to take office later this month, said Sunday that he looks forward to building good relations between the city of about 22,000 and Kerr County.

Pratt leads a global management consulting company.
