Treasure Coast Election Results

Last night Donald Trump was elected to be our next President of the United States.

Brian Mast defeated Randy Perkins 53-43 to be our new US Congressman. Mast spoke to his supporters after Perkins conceded the race just after 8pm last night.

Mast replaces Patrick Murphy, who failed in his bid to unseat Senator Marco Rubio. Murphy did well on the Treasure Coast, but lost statewide 52-44-percent. With such a divisive election season, Rubio said he hopes Florida will set the example for the rest of America.

State Representative Gayle Harrell held off challenger Crystal Lucas with 54-percent of the vote. In the race for State Representative District 82, Mary Lynn Magar defeated Mary Higgins 62-37 percent. And State Senator Joe Negron easily won reelection with a 64-35 win over Bruno Moore. In the judges race Michael McNicholas defeated Robert Meadows 56-43 for the 19th Judicial Court.

In Martin County, where the final results were in just 42 minutes after the polls closed, Sheriff William Snyder held off Robert Pryor and Dennis Root, pulling in 78-percent of the vote. Doug Smith pulled in 90-percent of the vote County Commission District 1 while write-in candidate Chase Lurgio, who is 18-years old and a senior in high school, managed 10-percent. Harold Jenkins received 96-percent of the vote to win the County Commission District 3 seat. And Michael DiTerlizzi got 53-percent of the vote for School Board Member District 5.

In St Lucie County, Joseph Smith got 95-percent of the vote for Clerk of the Circuit Court. Chris Craft won reelection for Tax Collector, defeating Bobby Hopkins with nearly 60-percent of the vote. Linda Bartz topped Howard Fein 53-46 for County Commissioner District 3, while Reggie Sessions defeated Cleaver Hayling 61-38 for Fort Pierce District 1. In maybe the closest race of the night, John Carvelli edged Linda Gausten by just 761 votes for Port St Lucie City Council District 2.

Of the ballot measures, St Lucie County voters rejected the half cent local government surtax with 53-percent of voters saying no.

And finally statewide, the Smart Solar amendment failed. Amendment 1 was criticized for being misleading, and being presented as a pro-solar amendment when it was really written by the power companies to hamper solar energy. It needed 60-percent to pass, but managed just under 51-percent.

Meanwhile the medical marijuana amendment passed, as did the amendments on tax exemptions for disabled first responders and homestead exemptions for certain senior low income residents.
