Robinson, Hines To Serve On County Commission

The County Commission will remain an all-Republican board.

Christine Robinson and Charles Hines were elected Tuesday to the Sarasota County Commission.

Robinson was elected to a four-year term after being appointed by Gov. Rick Scott in 2010 to fill a retirement vacancy. Robinson received 55.37 percent of the vote, or 104,347 total, against challenger Jennifer Cohen, who received 44.63 percent of the vote, 84,100 total.

Hines ran unopposed, and will serve his first term on the Commission. Both Robinson and Hines are Republicans.

The commissioners will be sworn in during a ceremony at 9 a.m. Nov. 20 in the Commission Chamber.

Robinson lives in District 3 and Hines lives in District 5, replacing Commissioner Jon Thaxton. The county charter requires commissioners to live in their districts, but they are elected at-large. 

Robinson, who is Commission Chair, is an attorney and served in the State Attorney's Office. Hines lives in Nokomis and is an attorney with a Venice law firm.
