Town Commission Update

The Town of Belleair held a special Commission meeting on December 19, 2023 to select candidates to fill the seats being vacated by two Commissioners as a result of their resignations, effective December 31, 2023. During the meeting, applicants introduced themselves and shared their backgrounds, as well as their goals for the Town. Patricia Barris and Thomas Kelly were selected by ballot vote of the Commission to fill the interim Commission seats. They were sworn in at the January 9, 2024 Commission meeting. Congratulations to our new Commissioners!

The candidate qualifying period for the March 2024 Election ended at 4:00pm on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.  The following candidates qualified for the respective seats/terms: 

  • Mayor (3-year term):  Mayor Mike Wilkinson
  • Commissioner (3-year term): Patricia Barris
  • Commissioner (3-year term): Thomas Kelly
  • Commissioner (1-year term): Todd Jennings

Due to the fact that these candidates did not have oppositions for the seats which they qualified for, it will not be necessary to hold an election for the Commission in March 2024. The new Commissioners will be sworn in at the April 9, 2024 Commission meeting.
