OVIEDO, Fla. – Megan Sladek was voted in as the new mayor of Oviedo, according to the Seminole County Supervisor Of Elections.

As of 7:44 p.m. Tuesday:

  • Megan Sladek 2,931 votes
  • Randy Core 2,315 votes
  • Emma L. Reichert 1,351 votes

Dominic Persampiere, Oviedo's mayor since 2011, decided earlier this year not to seek re-election.

Sladek, a former Oviedo City Council member, said she has consistently voted to prioritize spending on public safety and infrastructure and to keep taxes in check and would continue to do the same as mayor.

Polls closed at 7 p.m.

Persampiere announced in July that he would not seek re-election.

"I am not going away and Debbie, our girls and I will continue to make Oviedo our home," Persampiere said in a news release. "Please stay in touch. It's been an honor of a lifetime to serve the citizens of this great city and thank you for allowing me to do so."

Persampiere touted a list of accomplishments that he's helped oversee in his 20 years as a city leader, first as a council member and then as mayor.

The list included: Oviedo on the Park, a low tax rate for the city, a tornado warning system, a new water plant, a designation as Best Place to Live and more.
