Benson Elected Commissioner
Former Councilman Hayward Benson, Jr., has been elected to serve as Lauderhill's newest Commissioner. Serving the city for one term in 1980, Commissioner-Elect Benson won a second term when the qualifying period expired and he drew no other challengers to the seat.
Dr. Benson will occupy Seat 4, which became an open seat when Commissioner Mirsky decided to not run for re-election. The term of office is 4 years, and he will take office at a ceremony at 12 noon on March 17. The place of swearing in has not yet been set.
