SARASOTA — The City Commission is finally complete.
A runoff election today determined the fifth and final member — Willie Shaw, who took the District 1 seat.
Shaw received 733 votes, or 59%, defeating Linda Holland, who got 499 votes, or 41%.
The two were the top two District 1 candidates in the March election, but because neither received 50% of the vote, they had to face each other in the runoff.
Shaw joins commissioners-elect Paul Caragiulo and Shannon Snyder as new members to the panel.
All three will be sworn in Friday, May 13.
