Four municipalities of West Orange County held votes Tuesday, March 10, with only one newly elected candidate among six seats for commissions and councils, according to Orange County Elections' unofficial results.

That candidate is Bob McKinley, who received 26% of votes among ballots cast for Windermere Town Council, finishing third to replace two-term incumbent Mike Pirozzolo, who amassed 15% of votes.

Incumbents Jim O'Brien and Molly Rose retained their council seats, receiving 30% and 29% of votes respectively. Rose will begin her fourth council term, whereas O'Brien will begin his third.

These four candidates were up for three spots on the council. Orange County Elections listed vote totals as 234 for O'Brien, 225 for Rose, 205 for McKinley and 117 for Pirozzolo. Results showed 119 under votes, as well.


Two Ocoee commissioners sought re-election and won new three-year terms: District 2 re-elected Rosemary Wilsen with 62% of votes, and District 4 re-elected Joel Keller with 52% of votes.

Wilsen received 497 votes to challenger Mike Hopper's 307, and Keller got 237 votes versus 217 for George Oliver III.


Colin Sharman retained Winter Garden Commission Seat 4, obtaining 70% of votes against David Kassander. Kassander received just 107 votes to Sharman's 253.


Citizens of Oakland received ballots by mail to decide whether to alter the town's charter, including aspects concerning elections, town debt limits and defining the roles of the town's police department. Results were not available at press time. No other votes occurred for Oakland.
