Candidate qualifying for the City of Port St. Joe’s November elections began Wednesday at noon and will run through noon on March 30.
Any person who is a resident of the city and a qualified elector under the laws of the state, may become a candidate for the election of office of city commissioner by paying a qualification fee of $35.00 to the city auditor and clerk and by taking and subscribing to an oath or affirmation and filing the same with the city auditor and clerk not less than 20 days prior to the day of holding such election.
The offices of Commissioner for Group Three, which is currently held by Brett Lowry, and Commissioner for Group Four, which is currently held by Scott Hoffman, are up for election this year.
These elected positions are non-partisan and at large.
The names of all qualified candidates will be placed on the primary ballot in alphabetical order.
According to the Gulf County Supervisor of Elections John Hanlon, both incumbents are running for reelection. If no one qualifies to run against them, an election will not be held.
