North Miami - NMB A former North Miami Beach commissioner ousted a first-term incumbent in a runoff race Tuesday evening. Jay Chernoff ousted incumbent Paule Villard for the city's Group 2 commission seat. Chernoff won with about 53% of the vote. Chernoff joins a commission that has been split on ethical and financial issues in the past year, including a vote by commissioners to increase their own compensation. 'During this campaign, there was an absolute feeling that the citizens were unhappy with what was going on with the garbage, with the water, with the taxes,' Chernoff said.
