Four Vie for Eatonville Mayor Job

Charles Bargaineer, Anthony Grant and Alvin Moore all want Eatonville Mayor Bruce Mount’s position. But voters will decide on Saturday, March 7, who will be mayor in the town’s General and Special Election.

If you are a registered voter in the town, don’t forget to exercise your right and responsibility to vote on Saturday.

The election, which also includes town commission seats 2, 3 and 5, will take place at Eatonville’s Town Hall, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The mayor and commissioners serve three-year terms. The special election is for seat 5, which is open for an unexpired term with two years left.

This is an interesting mayoral race with the four men running to serve the small town of about 2,000, north of Orlando, nestled between Winter Park and Maitland. Mount beat long-term mayor Grant several years ago for the seat and now Grant is running against him to get it back.

In other Eatonville news: the town, alongside Mayor Mount, is mourning the loss of his wife Winifred K. Mount, who passed earlier this week. Her Home-going  celebration will be held 11 a.m. – also on Saturday, at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church.

  1. Before posting Eatonville’s Election results, shocking as they were with former long-time Mayor Anthony Grant beating out popular Mayor Bruce Mount and all of the council seats having very close results, we have read more news regarding the March 7 election: Mount earlier this week filed a civil complaint again Grant and the Orange County Canvassing Board.(Source: There are questions surrounding the 196 absentee ballots counted for Grant which is more votes Mount got in total and more absentee ballots than all of the three other candidates in total. (The other mayoral candidates were: Charles E. Bargineer and Alvin Moore). Grant had been mayor for 14 years before being voted out in 2009, when Mount was elected. If you live in Eatonville or nearby, please post your thoughts.
