Alexander Smith to succeed Billie Dean as Seat #1 City Commissioner

Suzanne Kidd, the leading vote-getter in the Apopka City Commission Seat #1 election, has withdrawn from the runoff, leaving Alexander Smith as the City Commissioner-Elect of Seat #1.

Smith succeeds six-term Apopka City Commissioner Billie Dean.

Orange County Supervisor of Elections Bill Cowles confirmed that the Seat #1 runoff is cancelled, leaving only a Seat #2 runoff between Commissioner Diane Velazquez and Alice Nolan.

Mail-in ballots for the Seat #2 runoff will be delayed by one day because of the Seat#1 cancellation, according to Cowles. Ballots will be mailed Tuesday.

This is a breaking story and will be updated.
