Veteran Alachua County Commissioner Wins Nomination Bid
Despite some serious competition this time around, a veteran Alachua County Commissioner moves forward. District 2 Alachua County Commissioner Lee Pinkoson won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday. He faced opposition from Gainesville City Commissioner Jack Donovan who had to resign his city commission seat, effective in November, to run for the county seat. Looking forward, Pinkoson is getting ready for the general election.
"There is somebody on the ballot so he's going to be competition and I'm going to have to work just as hard on that one as I did on this one," said Alachua County Commissioner Lee Pinkoson.
With all the precincts reporting, Pinkoson won with 53.77 percent of the vote. He will face the former High Springs Commissioner Jim Gabriel in November.
