Barry Moss is returning to the Pompano Beach City Commission, winning a re-match for the District 5 seat.

Moss, a gay man, defeated sitting Commissioner Cyndy Floyd in a district that includes five precincts in the city’s southwestern section. He got 4,052 votes (59%) to 2,818 (41%) for Floyd. 

At the induction meeting on Nov. 22, Moss said he was eager to continue Pompano Beach’s progress and development.

“When I joined this commission in 2014, much of what you see today was just a dream,” Moss said. “The beach was just a parking lot with a tattered old library on it and all we have to do is look to see what it looks like now.”

Moss carried four of the five precincts and ran up big margins in CO19 and CO20 – home to the Palm Aire Country Club, a popular community for LGBT seniors. In CO13, home to the John Knox Village, Moss took 74% of the vote.

“We have so many wonderful things coming down the pike that I wanted to be back here to be a part of the evolution of our city and we have made great, great strides here,” Moss said. 

Floyd ousted Moss from the dais in 2020 by a narrow margin, but got 2,165 fewer votes two years later. Data from the Broward Supervisor of Elections showed that on Nov. 1 there were 15,798 active voters in the district. Voter turnout in the election was 43%.
