Florida Armenians Endorsed Candidate Wins on Election Night
By Editorial Board
In the City of Boca Raton special election that took place on Tuesday, August 28th, Florida Armenians endorsed candidate for Mayor, Scott Singer, overwhelmingly won his election against challenger Al Zucaro, 63.5% to 33.5%. Singer has been a great friend of the Armenian American community in Boca Raton for many years.
In the three-way race to succeed Singer on the Boca Raton City Council, attorney Andy Thomson defeated his two opponents, capturing 44.15% of the vote. This race was too close to call on Election Night, with Thomson down the majority of the night. A hand recount was ordered by the Boca Raton Supervisor of Elections, which saw Thomson, who was down by 3 votes, prevail by 33 votes when all was said and done.
Florida Armenians congratulate Mayor Scott Singer and Councilman Andy Thomson on their election victories and we look forward to working with them on the important issues facing their Armenian American constituents in Boca Raton.
