Wayne Bloodsworth won the High Springs special election on Tuesday night to earn Seat 2 on the City Commission.  

Bloodsworth had 369 votes while candidate Chad Howell had 305 votes.  

The special election comes less than five months after High Springs voters selected Steve Tapanes to the seat over incumbent Gloria James. However, Tapanes resigned in late December over new state regulations about financial disclosure for city commissioners.

The resignation also came while looking for a new city manager. Former City Manager Ashley Stathatos resigned in November, and following a search, the City Commission selected Jeremy Marshall to fill the position

The High Springs Commission has its next regular meeting on Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
