It wasn’t even a horse race. Trish Pfeiffer, who had been the presumptive leading candidate since she announced her candidacy, ably showed she was the people’s choice, winning in lopsided fashion over her main opponent, Joe DeLegge, by a vote of 851 to 501. A total of 1,611 votes (both precinct and absentee).
DeLegge, who was not able to overcome the baggage of his past tenure as Bartow’s city manager, as well as that of his time as Dundee’s assistant town manager — both positions marked with tumult — was only able to muster 31.10 percent of votes cast to Pfeiffer’s 52.82 percent.
