MONROE - Louis Armstrong promised to keep the city moving forward after being declared the new mayor Tuesday when he edged out 18-year incumbent Bill Ross in the spring election. Armstrong, who was also voted into his seat as city council member again, earned 1,563 votes compared with the 1,373 Ross gathered. A third candidate, Marc Kennedy, withdrew from the race in January but still received 241 votes.
