Leon County Commission Chairman Akin Akinyemi has lost to opponent Mary Ann Lindley. After a highly contentious race, Lindley squeaked out a narrow win.
Lindley forced Akinyemi into a run-off in the August primary. The former Tallahassee Democrat reporter won by a 3 percent margin Tuesday night. Lindley said she won by appealing to Leon County voters of all walks of life.
“You know I felt, ive been able to bring a lot of people together in the way that a lot of folks just wish so much that people would do in congress. And I think my candidacy has done that,” Lindley said.
