Town of Beverly Beach
Congratulations to the successful candidates for the Town Commission! Incumbent candidates Debra Wingo and Jeff Schuitema were re-elected for new two-year terms through March of 2021. Newcomer Doug "Bruno" O'Connor was elected to his first term on the Commission, also for a two-year term. Mayor Steve Emmett ran for re-election unopposed and will continue serving a new two-year term through 2021.
Thank you to all 156 voters who turned out for this, our first election in ten years! While 156 may seem like slim participation, the Supervisor of Elections (Kaiti Lenhart) complimented Beverly Beach for having the highest percentage of voters turn out among the three cities conducting elections. Every vote DOES count! The margin between the third and fourth candidate was slim. The final vote tallies were: Wingo (118); O'Connor (98); and Schuitema (90). There were a total of 383 individual votes due to the fact that some voters only selected one or two candidates, and others selected the maximum of three out of the four qualified candidates.
