Three incumbents easily won reelection in the March 17 municipal election to keep their at-large seats on the Briny Breezes Town Council.


Christina Adams led all candidates with 103 votes, or 31.2% of the ballots cast. Bill Birch got 102 votes (30.9%) and Kathy Gross received 101 votes (30.6%).


Political newcomer Charles Swift had 15 votes and Lynne Weiner nine.


A month before the election, Weiner withdrew from the race, though her name remained on the ballot.


Council members serve two-year terms. Adams has served four years on the council.


Birch and Gross are beginning their second terms. All three cited improving relations between homeowners and building officials — in particular, simplifying and improving the town’s permitting procedures — as a priority for the council.


About 31% of Briny’s 330 registered voters turned out, compared with Palm Beach County’s overall turnout of 26.6%.
