Goodwin, who is finishing up his first term, was running against Toni Connor-Rooks, a former city administrator who quit last May after 17 years on the job.
Goodwin got about 58 percent of the votes and Toni Connor-Rooks got about 41 percent, according to unofficial returns from the county board of elections. There were a couple of write-in votes.
The mayor's position pays $9,600 a year.
Almost 45 percent of the city's registered voters turned out, which is considered unusually high for a municipal election.
Council members Dale Stuckey and Pennell Clamp were re-elected, but incumbent Paul Hume lost to challenger D.J. Rich, according to unofficial results.
