It's official. Fort Lauderdale has a new mayor.
Dean Trantalis beat opponent Bruce Roberts on Tuesday night. Trantalis made city history by also becoming the city's first openly LGBTQ mayor.
A third candidate, Charlotte Rodstrom, did not get enough votes during the primary election in January to stay in the race.
Elizabeth Athanasakos, a Fort Lauderdale resident of 61 years, voted at the Coral Ridge Mall polling location early Tuesday. She said she was motivated to come and vote for mayor this election because of her stance on development.
