Dave Aronberg appears to have won a decisive victory and will become Palm Beach County’s state attorney.
The Democrat fended off an energetic challenge from Republican Dina Keever, who accused Aronberg of doing political activities while being paid by the state attorney general’s office.
Aronberg rode a wave of Democratic enthusiasm in the county.
He argued that stamping out gang violence and pill mills should be priorities.
He also says he will, “Repair relations with the state prosecutor’s office.”
Aronberg also says an ethics complaint against him – that is currently being investigated by the state commission ethics – will be dismissed.
“It’s now become unfortunate that its become a part of politics to file an ethics complaint against your opponent knowing it won’t get dismissed until after the election is over. The whole thing was bogus. I can look to the people of Palm Beach County who have stood behind me for so many years and say we will run the most ethical state attorney’s office in the State of Florida.”
Aronberg says he has been planning his administration and that he is ready to take office.
