Cereceda, Stockton, Hosafros victorious in Beach Council election – Cape Coral Daily Breeze Wed, 12 Mar 2014 02:52:58 GMT

History was made on Fort Myers Beach Tuesday night when three women – a former Beach mayor and relatively two unknowns within Town government – were voted onto the Fort Myers Beach Town Council.

Anita Cereceda, Summer Stockton and Rexann Hosafros amassed the most votes among the five hopefuls on the ballot to become the newly elected town officials in the municipal election. They knocked out Vice Mayor Joe Kosinski, the incumbent who was not re-elected for a second term, and experienced planner Chuck Bodenhafer, whose path through the LPA (like former mayor and current Lee County Commissioner Larry Kiker, outgoing Councilman Bob Raymond and Kosinski) did not pan out this time.

The plurality election featured the top three vote getters being elected without the need of a runoff. The election will be certified on Friday when provisional ballots come in from the three precincts at which time the results become official. At those voting sites Tuesday, 1,386 out of 5,136 registered voters cast ballots for a 26.99 percent turnout.
