Should City Commissioner Lynne Plaskett opt to run again for her zone 4 seat, she'll have competition. Qualifying papers have been taken out by Patrick Casserly. Click the PDF attachment for details on his filing.
She has yet to file and neither has Mayor Adam Barringer, though he is, indeed, running for a second term.
With Jim Hathaway having announced last fall that he was running for a seat on the Volusia County Council, along with candidates Deb Denys of New Smyrna Beach and Justin Kennedy of Edgewater. With Hathaway making his announcement last fall that he would not seek re-election with the commission, that seat so far has one candidate, Jason McGuirk, chairman of the Planning and Zoning Board, whose announcement immediately followed Hathaway's.
Casserly could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Plaskett, a former County Council member, said she's moving closer to announcing her intention whether to seek another term.
Qualifying officially ends noon Wednesday, June 13.
