By Times Staff Writer
Published November 4, 2004
Stephen Spivey won all five counties in the 5th Judicial Circuit Group 10 race against Michael Takac.
Early totals Tuesday night showed Spivey carried four of the counties. When Sumter County reported its totals, it was clear Spivey had won. In Citrus County, Spivey received 33,275 votes to Takac's 24,587. The five-county total was 207,624 votes for Spivey and 152,123 for Takac.
Five judges from the 5th District Court of Appeal easily won new terms. In Florida, appellate judges stand for merit retention, which means voters either vote to bring them back or vote them out of office. Seventy-two percent of voters wanted Judge Jacqueline R. Griffin to have a new six-year term. Judges David A. Monaco (71 percent), Earle W. Peterson Jr., (71 percent) Winifred J. Sharp (70 percent) and Vincent G. Torpy Jr. (70 percent) received similarly high marks.
Voters in Citrus, Hernando, Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Putnam, Seminole, St. Johns, Sumter and Volusia counties had a chance to vote on the judges.
