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.
