Incumbent Chiefland City Commissioner Frank Buie defeated former Commissioner Alice Monyei 152 to 94 in their third race for the Group 1 seat in six years.


The two vied for the only race on Tuesday's ballot today. The other two city commissioners up for election this year, Rollin Hudson and Sammy Cason, were both re-elected without opposition.

Monyei won the first contest in 2005, but lost the seat to Buie in a hotly contested race in 2007. The second race was marred by a complaint and investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement into whether non-residents voted in the election. No one was charged.
