With the end of qualifying for a seat on the Board of County Commissioners, we now have a final slate of candidates for District 2 and District 4 in Nassau County.
Republican candidates Aaron Bell, and Dawn Hagel will vie for the District 2 seat currently held by Commissioner Steve Kelley who recently withdrew from the race. Because there are no non-republican candidates, write in candidates, or candidates with no party affiliation, the District 2 seat will be decided on Primary Election Day, August 28. All registered voters will be allowed to vote for the District 2 candidate in that election.
In District 4, the August 28 Primary, limited to registered Republican voters, will decide the race between incumbent George Spicer and challenger Thomas Ford. The winner will face write in candidate William (Bill) Kruse on election day November 6.
In the City of Fernandina Beach, individuals interested in running for office to gain a seat on the Fernandina Beach City Commission have until Friday, July 13, 2018 – 5:00 PM to qualify.
