LARGO - Largo voters made their choices known Tuesday in two commission races, and answered two referendum questions.

According to the unofficial vote totals published on the Pinellas County Supervisor of Election's Web site, in the race for City Commission Seat 1, Mary Gray Black received 1,277 votes, or 47.67 percent. Gigi Arntzen took in 1,058 votes, or 39.49 percent. Joshua A. Lindsey received 344 votes, or 12.84 percent.

In the race for City Commission Seat 2, Andrew W Guyette received 1,658 votes, or 64.02 percent. His opponent Rodney J. Woods took in 932 votes, or 35.98 percent, according to the unofficial results posted at 8:13 p.m. March 1.

According to the unofficial count, voters said yes to Referendum Question 1, meaning annexed residents now will be eligible to serve immediately on the City Commission. Approval of this question will require that Commissioners report violations of city officials, and the yes vote also will allow the appointment of an assistance city manager, change the name of the planning and zoning directors and the planning zoning board and clarify the authority of the personnel advisory board.

The unofficial tally for Referendum Question 1 was 1,871 votes yes, or 73.06 percent to 690 votes no, or 26.94 percent.

Vote totals for Referendum Question 2 were close. According to the unofficial results, 1,271 yes votes were cast, or 48.79 percent to 1,334 no votes, or 51.21 percent.

Approval of Question 2 would have amended the City Charter to allow the Commission to appoint an internal auditor to serve "at the pleasure" of the Commission.
