On September 3, incumbent Carrabelle City Commissioner Brenda La Paz topped the field of five as she was returned to office, with political newcomer Audrey Olivia Massey winning a tight battle for the second seat.
Massey is the granddaughter of Mayor Curley Messer.
Nikki Mock Millender, 36, finished in fourth place, with 108 votes, while Franklin Daniels, 52, picked up 58 votes. A total of 375 registered Carrabelle voters cast ballots in the election.
Massey said she is eager to get to her top priority – helping to bolster what the city can offer its youth.
“First thing I really want to work on is getting a grant and get something for our youth, and get some jobs in here, which is not only what the city of Carrabelle needs but what the whole county needs,” Massey said.
