NAPLES — One incumbent and a newcomer won seats Tuesday on two Collier County boards that oversee mosquito control and soil and water conservation.
Longtime Collier Mosquito Control District member Robert Geroy got 36,451 votes, or 51 percent, compared to 35,304 votes, or 49 percent, for challenger David Randall.
Geroy, 78, a retired marketing executive, won a sixth term on the mosquito control board.
Randall, 57, an East Naples veterinarian, said he wanted to do more preventative mosquito control.
In the race for the Collier Soil and Water Conservation District, Pelican Bay resident Tom Cravens had 37,965 votes, or 53 percent, compared to 33,907 votes, or 47 percent, for Laurie Mitchell.
Cravens, 67, a retired college professor from Missouri, said he wants to step up the district’s educational outreach. He lives in Pelican Bay.
Mitchell, 52, had served on the soil and water board from 1996 and 2000.
The tree nursery owner in Golden Gate Estates said she wanted to give the district a larger voice in state and federal issues.
