Friday Deadline Political Roundup

Friday Deadline Political Roundup

According to the Jackson County Supervisor of Elections office as of the noon Friday, June 20, deadline for official candidate qualifications, two new candidates have jumped into the local races during the last three days. By Wednesday, June 18, Cheryl Guy of Woods View Drive in Marianna had qualified to oppose incumbent District 5 school board member Charlotte M. Gardner. School board elections are non-partisan and those are the only two candidates so the District 5 winner will be determined in the August 26 Primary, the elections office said. Gardner is seeking her third term on the school board.

Former Jackson County Commissioner and Democrat Howard J. Glass of Phillips Road in Cottondale has qualified to run against Jackson County Commission District 2 incumbent Commissioner Edward E. Crutchfield of Tri-County Road in Graceville. Crutchfield defeated Glass, then the incumbent, eight years ago; he beat him again in the 2010 elections. Crutchfield is also a Democrat so he will face Glass in the Primary election. The winner of that contest will face Republican candidate Clint Pate of Earlston Road in Graceville in the general election on November 4. Other Jackson County commission and school board races were unchanged from last week. As reported by the TIMES last week, incumbent Jackson County Commissioner Jeremy Branch has withdrawn from the elections this year but his withdrawal did not result in any additional candidates joining that race--other than the eight currently running.

Here is the final ticket for the Florida House of Representatives District Race, according to the elections office today: As previously reported, Republican Brad Drake of DeFuniak Springs will face Republican Jan Hooks, a Realtor from Santa Rosa Beach, in the Primary. The winner will face Democrat candidate Travis Pitts of Chipley and Libertarian candidate Barbara Shoen of Wausau in the general election. Pitts paid his fee and qualified in the last two days, the election office said.
