The mayor’s seat had been vacant since Charles Lacey resigned in March.

Lacey, who had been Winter Springs mayor since 2010, sent a letter to the city clerk on March 12 stating that he would be resigning as mayor.

At the time, Lacey cited a change in attitude within the city commission as the reason for his departure.

“It’s been building, the commission has changed considerably. In my first eight years in office I took great pride in representing the city everywhere I went. I felt like the city was admired, people were envious of the way we ran things,” he said.
