It’s only the middle of June, but we already know who won the city commission races in Wilton Manors.

Incumbents Chris Caputo and Mike Bracchi get another term because no one filed to run against them. The deadline to qualify for the ballot was June 14. Two candidates for two open seats equals a fait accompli.

The Gazette reached out to both once the deadline passed. Bracchi, who is also serving as vice mayor until November, said, “I am honored to have the opportunity to serve a second term as city commissioner of Wilton Manors. This community means a great deal to me, and I am committed to continuing our work to enhance the quality of life for all residents.”

His goals for the next four years include making the city more environmentally friendly, infrastructure investment, and creating a better economic environment for new and existing businesses.

Caputo said his goals include luring projects to Andrews Ave., aka The Avenue, and developing that oft overlooked side of town.

Your overwhelming support and trust in my work inspire me to continue striving for the best for our community,” he posted on social media.

City commissioners serve four-year terms, while the mayor is elected every two years. When asked if they would serve their full term, their answers differed.

Bracchi said, “I am fully committed to serving my entire term as city commissioner. My focus remains on fulfilling my responsibilities to the residents of Wilton Manors.”

Caputo kept the option open, saying, “If I felt there was an absence of leadership, I would consider running in two years, but otherwise I’d prefer to fulfill my term.”
