Former El Portal mayor Daisy Black took her old job back Tuesday, defeating current mayor Joyce Davis, according to unofficial results.
But incumbent council members Harold Mathis and Linda Marcus defeated their opponents to remain in office.
Black, currently a Village Council member, is a part-time substitute teacher for Miami-Dade Schools. She served as mayor in the late 1990’s.
Davis, a retiree, has been on council since 2006.
For Council Seat 1, Vice Mayor Harold Mathis, a paralegal, defeated political newcomer Marcus Parramore.
For Seat 4, incumbent Linda Marcus, an independent grant writer, defeated novice Sadri Manrique. Marcus has been on council since 2004.
Seat 3 will be determined in a separate election 30 to 90 days after Nov. 2. Only one person, Omarr C. Nickerson, filed to run for that seat, but he didn’t qualify because he was not registered to vote in the village, according to the village clerk.
