One incumbent Delray Beach City Commissioner was ousted from her seat, and another former City Commissioner was rejected in municipal elections Tuesday, unofficial results show.
Voters also approved borrowing $120 million for improving city facilities.
With 6,773 voters casting ballots in the at-large election and all precincts reporting, unofficial results show incumbent Commissioner Juli Casale was upset by Rob Long to represent Seat 2 on the City Commission. Casale earned 47% of the vote to Long’s 53%.
For Seat 4’s race, Angela Burns won 52% of the vote to Angie Gray’s 48%. Gray had served on the Commission from 2009 to 2014.
The election promises to upset a 3-2 split on the Commission that’s defined many city votes, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
On the bonds, unofficial results show nearly 61% of Delray Beach voters approved borrowing $100 million for renovations at the Delray Beach police station on West Atlantic Avenue, in addition to a number of fire stations. The police station would be a rebuild of Delray’s 36-year-old police station, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Also, nearly 63% of voters approved a $20 million bond to upgrade the Catherine Strong Park at 1500 S.W. 6th St.
