Belleair Bluffs Commissioners Taylour Shimkus and Joe Barkley.
BELLEAIR BLUFFS – The incumbents will keep their seats on the Belleair Bluffs Commission after the March 11 Municipal Election.

Joe Barkley will serve a fourth term and Taylour Shimkus will return for a third term.

They defeated challenger George Lawton, who also ran unsuccessfully for a commission seat in 2013.

According to the unofficial results posted on the Supervisor of Elections website, Barkley received 428 votes, 36.36 percent. Shimkus took in 406 votes, 34.49 percent. Lawton received 343 votes, 29.14 percent.

A total of 1,177 voters participated. Belleair Bluff voters had returned 64.9 percent of 676 mail ballots requested as of March 10. Twenty-eight cast their ballots during early voting.

Belleair Bluffs residents also joined with most of Pinellas County to pick a new representative for District 13 in the U.S. Congress. Republican David Jolly defeated challengers Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby. He will fill the seat left vacant after former Rep. C.W. “Bill” Young died Oct. 18.

According to Elections Administrator Nancy Whitlock, counts from the provisional ballots will be added. The unofficial results also do not contain all mail ballots or 10-day overseas ballots.

Official election results cannot be certified until votes from the 10-day overseas ballots are added to unofficial results, and the earliest that can occur is the 10th day after the election. The deadline to certify official election results is noon on the 12th day after the election.
