Bill Jonson retains Seat 4 and Hoyt Hamilton aquires Seat 5.
CLEARWATER – Incumbent Bill Jonson will keep Seat 4 on the Clearwater Council. He will be joined by newcomer Hoyt Hamilton in Seat 5.

Jonson was challenged by David Allbritton and Konrad McCree Jr. in the March 11 Municipal Election. Hoyt Hamilton and Jon-Paul Rosa competed for Seat 5 vacated by Paul Gibson due to term limits.

According to unofficial results posted on the Supervisor of Elections website, Jonson received 9,509 votes, 43.35 percent. Allbritton garnered 9,132 votes, 41.63 percent. McCree took in 3,294 votes, 15.02 percent.

Hamilton came out on top for Seat 5 with 13,834 votes, 63.33 percent, to Rosa's with 8,011 votes, 36.67 percent.

A total of 21,935 voted in the race for Seat 4 and 21,845 for Seat 5. Clearwater voters had returned 57.1 percent of 28,298 mail ballots requested as of March 10. Another 976 took advantage of early voting.

Clearwater 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.
