Mack Bernard coasts into Senate seat unopposed

by The 100 Companies

Palm Beach Commissioner Mack Bernard is heading back to the Legislature after no one filed to run against him for the soon-to-be-vacant Senate District 24 seat.

He’ll succeed Sen. Bobby Powell, a fellow Democrat now seeking Bernard’s County Commission job.

“I am just so thankful for the opportunity to continue my service,” Bernard said.

Gov. Ron DeSantis called a Special Election for SD 24 last month after Powell announced his resignation.

The deadline to qualify was Tuesday. Only Bernard, a former state Representative and Delray Beach Commissioner, filed in time.

He and Powell announced plans to swap seats last year.
