Masters Out as Mayor of Riviera Beach

For the first time in more than a decade, Riviera Beach will have a new Mayor.
Challenger Ronnie Felder handily defeated incumbent Thomas Masters in a runoff election Tuesday night.
Masters had edged Felder in the general election but neither candidate earned the 50% of votes necessary for a victory so the race went to a runoff.
Felder entered his watch party at the Riviera Beach Marina shortly after it became clear he was going to win.
He pumped his fist in the air as the crowd cheered.
Felder says his top priority is unity, trying to bring the city together to work for the future.
