Weston City Commission
The Weston City Commission is comprised of five members: the Mayor and four Commissioners. The Mayor and Commissioners are elected at-large by a plurality vote, meaning the candidate with the highest number of votes wins the seat. Although the Commission seats are separated into districts, all registered voters in Weston can vote for each seat. There are no run-off elections.
By City Charter, the Mayor and Commission are limited to serve two consecutive four-year terms. An individual can once again become a candidate after having not served in that elected seat for one full term. A Commissioner that has served two consecutive terms is still eligible to run for the position of Mayor immediately following his/her term. Likewise, a Mayor having served two consecutive terms may be a candidate for Commissioner immediately following his/her Mayoral term.
Compensation for the position of Mayor is $16,000 annually, and for the position of Commissioner is $12,300 annually, and is set by the electorate of the City.
City Commission Election and Term of Office
The City of Weston's municipal elections are held on the same dates as the November General Election every even-numbered year. The Commission seats are staggered so that the entire Commission is not up for re-election at once. The City is divided into four areas as delineated on the Commission Residential Seat Areas map and assigned numbered seats: 1, 2, 3, and 4.
To qualify to run for election for a Commission Seat a person must be a resident of the Residential Area that he/she is running for, and have resided continuously within the Residential Area for which election is being sought for at least one year preceding the date of filing. The Mayor is elected at-large and may reside in any area of the City.
Individuals who are interested in becoming a candidate for the City of Weston may contact the City Clerk for additional information.
