BROOKSVILLE — Software consultant Jeff Holcomb won a narrow victory over Realtor Laurie Pizzo in the Republican primary for the District 4 seat on the Hernando County Commission on Tuesday.
By the time final results were posted after 11 p.m., Holcomb had just 79 votes more than Pizzo. But that was not close enough to trigger an automatic recount, according to Supervisor of Elections Shirley Anderson.
Holcomb's campaign focus has been on growing the local economy, pushing for economic development and not increasing tax rates.
He will face Democrat Dan Oliver and no party candidate H. David Werder in November general election.
