Tampa City Council member Joseph Citro’s tenure on City Council will end this year, after he failed to land in the top two in Tuesday’s election in a crowded field of challengers.
Citro collected just 20% of the vote while Alan Clendenin claimed more than 40%.
Sonja P. Brookins was second with more than 22% of the vote. She’ll face Clendenin in a runoff April 25.
Citro, the current City Council chair, faced a tough reelection battle with three challengers hoping to end his tenure on the dais.
A recent poll showed Brookins and Clendenin seven percentage points ahead of Citro.
