Voters in Cape Coral voted today on the City's next mayor. The two candidates on the ballot were Marni Sawicki and Incumbent John Sullivan. Sullivan ran against tax increases and commercial development. Sawicki focused her campaign on high quality jobs, education and an open and transparent city government.
In Fort Myers, voters decided between Incumbent Randy Henderson and Raimond Aulen for Mayor. The two were unable to debate during the race because Aulen didn't show up for debates.
Voters in Fort Myers also decided on Amendment One, which would consolidate the Fort Myers Police Department with the Lee County Sheriff's Office. Members of the Police Benevolent Association are against the decision. They say the move would cost officers their jobs and affect public safety. Supporters say it's a tax dollar saving measure. But, Police Chief Doug Baker said the proposal would not save any money. Sheriff Mike Scott said his office is remaining neutral on the issue.
In Charlotte County, two new candidates were on the ballot for Punta Gorda City Council. Nancy Prafke and Charlie Counsil both ran for District Five. Prafke has been the CEO of Team Punta Gorda for the last five years. Counsil has been living in Punta Gorda for the last eight years.
