Alan Johnson out as St. Pete Beach Mayor

by The 100 Companies

Alan Johnson was again on the ballot for Mayor-Commissioner of St. Pete Beach, but this time he failed to find success.

With 55% of the vote, challenger Adrian Petrila took the seat, denying Johnson a third term.

The St. Pete Beach race was arguably the highest profile of the beach contests, and the most divisive.

While the Mayor’s race is a nonpartisan job, Johnson is a Democrat and Petrila is a Republican.

The race saw a flurry of attack ads from shell organizations, including an anti-Johnson mailer calling Johnson a “Charlie Crist Democrat.”

Anti-Petrila mailers called him a “risky” outsider.
