The City of Delray Beach is back in our Election Spotlight, where Seat 4 on the City Commission is up for grabs in the March 14 municipal election.
Angela Burns ran in 2020 and lost to the current seat holder, Shirley Johnson, who is now termed out. Burns faces former City Commissioner Angie Gray in this race.
Burns, like the candidates in the other Delray Beach commission race, is happy with the job of the local police.
"I think that we have an A+ police department and I am committed to supporting them and making sure that they stay in the Top 3, make sure that they have competitive salaries because we lose a lot of good officers, like teachers, to other municipalities."
Burns, a newly retired school teacher who has lived in the city for nearly 60 years, has served on various boards in Delray Beach.
"I did two terms on the Education Board some years ago. I am currently serving on the Affordable Housing Board. I am also on the Library Board for the City of Delray Library."

We reached out to Angie Gray several times and have not heard back.
