Voters in Key West chose three new city commissioners this week, rejecting one incumbent and choosing two newcomers for open seats.

Richard Payne, a retired Monroe County circuit judge, defeated Tony Yaniz by an almost 2-1 margin. Yaniz had served one four-year term on the City Commission.

Payne said he would focus on keeping down property taxes and oppose paying for consultants and surveys to find out what citizens want.  


The seats for Miami's District 5 commission and Miami Beach's commissioners were filled in a runoff election Tuesday, Nov. 19. Look below for the results.
