Recount For Second Seat On The Oakland Park City Commission Scheduled

A machine recount of Oakland Park’s election contest is expected to take place on Monday, November 14 at 10 a.m. following a nail-biting finish for the second of two seats on the Oakland Park City Commission.

Former two-time mayor Tim Lonergan led a field of six candidates by a large margin to win a seat on the Commission in Tuesday’s election. Lonergan easily sailed to victory with 4168 votes (25.99%).

Second Seat to Be Decided

The recount next Monday will verify who won the second seat on the Commission. In a last-minute, come-from behind upset, another political veteran, Steven Arnst narrowly defeated newcomer Leticia “Tish” Newbold by 39 votes, triggering the recount.
