November 7, 2012
Two new faces and an incumbent were elected Tuesday to the Escambia County Commission.
In District 1, incumbent Wilson Robertson defeated challenger Bobby Spencer. Robertson garnered about 65 percent of the vote.
In District 3, Lumon May received 71 percent of the vote for the seat being vacated by Marie Young, who did not seek re-election.
In District 5, Republican Steven Barry received 70 percent of the vote to defeat NPA candidate Packy Mitchell for the seat currently held by Kevin White, who dropped out of the race before the primary election.
“I’m excited for the opportunity to serve, the opportunity to make a tangible difference in the county and the commission district,” Barry said Tuesday night.
He said he wants Escambia County business conducted in such a way that is always above board, and he wants Escambia County to be perceived as a great place to do business.
“I want to see a difference,” he said. “I want things to be better.”
