The City of Coral Springs is looking for a few good men and woman to run for mayor – and they better decide quickly because the qualification period begins this week.
In a special election voted by the city commission to fill Skip Campbell’s seat after his sudden passing, the next mayor will complete his term – and could subsequently run in future campaigns as well.
The election date is set for Tuesday, March 12, 2019, and could have the potential to add Seat Two to the ballot after City Commissioner Dan Daley announced his intention to run for State Rep. Jared Moskowitz’s house seat after Moskowitz was appointed by Governor-Elect Ron DeSantis director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management. Daley’s bid for the house seat would require him to resign from the city commission to run.
Interested candidates must qualify between noon, January 2, 2019 through noon, January 9, 2019. City Clerk Debra Thomas asks that potential candidates contact her at 954-344-1067 so she can make sure they have all the information.
Candidates must be an eligible voter and have resided in Coral Springs in the last six months.
