Residents in the City of Fairfax will head to the polls Tuesday to vote for a new mayor, six months after the city's previous mayor was arrested in a meth-for-sex sting operation.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Last year, the city's previous mayor, R. Scott Silverthorne, was arrested after police received a tip that he was using a dating website to set up sexual encounters with other men in exchange for drugs. Police say Silverthorne gave an undercover detective two grams of methamphetamine outside a Tysons Corner hotel before his arrest.
Silverthorne resigned days later.
Silverthorne appointed city councilman Jeffrey Greenfield as acting mayor following Silverthorne's arrest and resignation.
