Steven Grant, 33, is the new Boynton Beach mayor.

When reached by phone Tuesday night, Jerry Taylor, 80, said: “It’s over. He won.”

“I was honored to serve the city for 13 years. I did my best and I hope the city moves forward,” he said.

Grant, when reached by phone, was celebrating at the Twisted Fish.

“A lot of people didn’t give me any sort of chance in the beginning and I was able to prove them all wrong,” Grant said.
