Ahmed El-Gendy Won Honorary Mayor for 2012!

Lehigh Acres has a new honorary mayor who earned the title by raising $164 more than his closest contestant in the competition. The race for honorary mayor is based on who can raise the most money by selling votes.

Ahmed El-Gendy, a technologist in his father's Florida Lung & Sleep Associates, raised $2,680. This is the first year that the Honorary Mayor Contest was sponsored by the Greater Lehigh Acres Chamber of Commerce. For decades, it was sponsored as a fundraiser by Lehigh Community Services.

El-Gendy beat Marcie Deloreto, who came in second with $2,516. Coming in third was Julie Camp with $2,100 and in fourth place was Johnna Oaker with $1,629.20.

The announcement was made on the outside stage of the Lehigh Acres Spring Festival on Friday night, March 23 with several hundred people looking on.
