The Palm Beach County Municipal Elections are in the books.

Here are some highlights:

The city of Boca Raton is getting a new mayor.  Susan Haynie defeated fellow council member Anthony Majhess with 57 percent of the vote.  A major issue in that race was controlling growth. 

There were also two council seat races in Boca.  Incumbent Michael Mullaugh won re-election in seat B and the open race for seat D has Robert Weinroth running away with it.


One more term for 86 year old Royal Palm Beach Mayor Matty Mattioli.  He edged out city activist Felicia Matula in a four-way race for mayor.  Mattioli beat Matula by one percent of the vote, with Martha Webster the next closest challenger.  She captured 21 percent of the vote in that race.  The incumbent mayor said he wanted to serve one more term in the village in which he has served in some capacity since 1994.


In Boynton Beach, City Commissioner Joe Casello will serve another term, easily defeating Carmela Nanton with 79 percent of the vote.  Mack McCray won the open commission seat against Paula Melley.


Two incumbents were running for City Commission seats in Delray Beach, but only one will serve another term.  Al Jacquet won his race for re-election to his seat 2 on the commission.  Seat 4 incumbent Angeleta Gray was defeated by challenger Jordana Jarjura. 


There will be no Rooney on the local level of government.  Joseph Rooney lost his battle for Juno Beach Town Council against Jason Haselkorn by a 70 to 30 percent vote.  Rooney's brothers are U-S Rep. Tom Rooney and State Rep. Pat Rooney.  A win would have put a Rooney in all three levels of government.

The incumbents won in the Palm Beach Gardens City Council races.  Eric Jablin and Marcie Tinsley each beat their challengers.

Two incumbents have won their races in Wellington.  Anne Gerwig and Howard Coates will both get another term on the Village Council.
