Jacksonville voters reelected Democrats Tommy Hazouri and Ju’Coby Pittman in Tuesday’s City Council runoff election, while Republican Terrance Freeman will move from District 10 to At-Large Group 1 after defeating Duval County Democratic Party Chair Lisa King.

Hazouri, a former Jacksonville mayor and school board member, retained his At-Large Group 3 seat with 58.05% of the vote. He defeated Republican Greg Rachal, according to unofficial results released by Duval County Supervisor of Elections Mike Hogan.
