A political newcomer and a seasoned public servant will join the Delray Beach City Commission after they were handily elected March 14.
The most contentious race was between retiree Jim Chard and his main contender, political novice Kelly Barrette, for Seat 2. Two others — police officer Richard Alteus and social worker Anneze Barthelemy — also ran for that seat, but garnered less than 10 percent of the vote each.
