Elections are over in Boca Raton. The fight for mayor ended with Susan Haynie defeating Anthony Majhess with 57 percent of the vote. This was the first mayoral race in recent Boca history that pitted two City Council members against each other.
Haynie has also served as Deputy Mayor and sits on several transportation planning boards, while Majhess is a professional firefighter in Palm Beach County. The biggest issue in the mayoral race had to do with building and expansion. Boca residents say with Haynie as mayor, the city will see much more urban development.
For the two open City Council seats, which are at-large positions, Michael Mullaugh won re-election and Robert Weinroth came out on top to claim the other seat.
The outgoing council will meet one more time before the newly elected officials take over at the end of the month. Several calls to Mayor Elect Haynie were not returned. So Boca will have to wait to hear her plans for the city when she takes over at the end of the month.
