Months of campaigning and multiple elections later, the race for the next mayor of Dickinson came to an end in unusual fashion Thursday night — with Friendswood Mayor Mike Foreman drawing Sean Skipworth’s name out of a top hat.

“I have to thank the candidates for stepping up, you need candidates in a small town,” Foreman said before drawing the name. “And for them to do all this work, with the campaign extended, I feel terrible for both of them.”
