Braddy Earns Decisive Win Against Lowe to Become Gainesville's Next Mayor
Published April 16th, 2013
GAINESVILLE - The city of Gainesville will soon have a new mayor after voters unseated incumbent Craig Lowe and elected former city commissioner Ed Braddy by a decisive margin of ten percentage points.
Members of the Braddy campaign were all smiles Tuesday night as they gathered to celebrate their candidate's win over the incumbent mayor.
Despite viewing himself as the underdog, Braddy managed to beat Mayor Lowe by more than 1200 votes, something Braddy attributes to his diverse base of supporters, which included members of the Gainesville Tea Party as well as the Alachua County Democratic Black Caucus.
Meanwhile, it was a somber mood inside the campaign office of Mayor Lowe, who addressed his supporters shortly after congratulating Braddy over the phone.
While Lowe praised his team for all they've helped him to accomplish over the last three years, he did not directly address his plans for the future after he leaves office.
