City Commissioner Aaron Delgado, who represents Daytona Beach’s Zone 2, announced he is resigning from his elected post.
In his resignation letter dated July 26, Delgado said the reason for his resignation was due to his Halifax Avenue home being sold and his subsequent purchase of a “dream house” outside of Zone 2, which encompasses the northern end of the city’s beachside, the Seabreeze corridor and the area around Mason Avenue and Nova Road. Delgado offered to serve on the City Commission until a replacement was in office or step down immediately.
“We truly thank Commissioner Delgado for his service to the citizens of Daytona Beach and we know his law practice will continue to be a thriving business on Seabreeze as we work to improve that corridor,” said City Manager Deric C. Feacher.
After first being elected in 2016, Delgado was re-elected to a four year term in November 2020.
According to the city’s charter, a special election must be held to fill the vacant seat. Details of the special election will be discussed at the August 4 City Commission meeting. Delgado will be in attendance.
