Alachua Election Results In
A short but controversial election in the city of Alachua ended with the voters going to the polls Tuesday.
But the question now is, will the controversy continue?
State elections monitors were on hand to watch the balloting.
There's no early word on any claim of problems.
Tuesday night, City Manager Clovis Watson told WCJB, "the residents of the city of alachua have spoken."
Despite facing opposition from two challengers, voters re-elected Incumbent Bonnie Burgess for the city commission seat.
She got 66% of the vote, or 586 votes.
Charles Grapski, who filed several lawsuits against the city in recent months, won 21% or 186 votes, and businessman Michael Perkins got 12% or 109 votes.
Only 881 votes were cast in this election, 30 of those being absentee ballots. City Leaders say that turnout is below normal.
Burgess and Mayor Jean Calderwood, who was unopposed, will be sworn in next Monday night at the city commission meeting.
They will both serve three year terms.
