Stephanie Adams beat her two opponents Tuesday to win a seat on the Citrus County Mosquito Control District board.
Adams, whose husband already sits on the board, beat opponents Timothy Langer and Theressa Foster West. Adams won the seat with nearly 43.44% of the vote, or 34,962 votes, according to unofficial results from the Citrus County Supervisor of Elections website.
The other two candidates each received less than 30% of the votes.
The district's mission is to promote the health, safety and welfare of Citrus County residents and visitors using mosquito management practices to control populations of mosquitoes that may become a nuisance or a threat to public health, according to the district’s mission statement.
It was established in 1953.
Adams moved to Citrus County in 2003 to work for Duke Energy as a nuclear chemistry technician and later health physics technician.
She has a Bachelor of Science in Applied Technology/Computer Science.
