One of Northern Kentucky's long-standing political figures,  Joe Meyer, has ousted incumbent Sherry Carran as the mayor of Northern Kentucky's largest city.

One of the most contentious races in the region is taking place in Covington, where voters in Northern Kentucky's largest city are choosing a mayor.

On one side is the incumbent, Sherry Carran, a former city commissioner who was first elected mayor in 2012; and on the other, Joe Meyer, a former state representative and state senator who headed the state's Education and Workforce Development Cabinet under former governor Steve Beshear.

The race for who will become the next mayor of Covington seems to be focused on two very different perceptions of the city and whether or not it is moving in the right direction.
