Belleair Beach is set to host it’s municipal elections March 15, during which voters will elect a Mayor, a contest that will pit incumbent Mayor Joseph Manzo against current Council member and Vice Mayor Dave Gattis.
The only incumbent Council member running for re-election is Robyn Ache, who was first elected to City Council in 2019.
That leaves two of the three Council seats on the upcoming ballot open, with Council member Rita Swope not seeking re-election. Those running for Council include Lloyd Roberts, Berc Sarafian, Jody Shirley, Lynda Kathryn Welch and Mike Zabel.
The three top vote-getters will be elected.
