Rhonda Anderson and Kirk Menendez will be Coral Gables’ newest commissioners after beating their opponents in a runoff election to replace Mayor-elect Vince Lago and outgoing Commissioner Patricia Keon.

Rhonda Anderson and Kirk Menendez will be Coral Gables’ newest commissioners after beating their opponents in a Tuesday runoff election to determine the successor for two elected officials who gave up their seats to run for mayor.

Anderson will replace Commissioner Patricia Keon as the city’s Group III commissioner. And in the Group II race, Menendez will replace Mayor-elect Vince Lago, who defeated Keon in the April 13 mayor’s race.

The newcomers’ presence on the dais will change the tone of the commission, which requires three votes to approve projects and legislation.
