Sybrina Fulton’s race for county commissioner has officially come to an end.

According to the Miami Herald, Fulton, who had no political background, lost to Mayor Oliver Gilbert by less than one percent, receiving 331 less votes than her competitor.

“My time as a public servant began 30 years ago at Miami-Dade County. Since 2012, I have advocated tirelessly to empower our communities and make them safer,” Fulton said at the time. “But the work is not done. I am proud to announce that I will run to represent District 1 on the county commission.”
