NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. -- Russ Owen has pledged that if elected on Nov. 6, he will do everything possible to fight over-development as the new mayor of this tourism-driven city where preserving the charm appears to be more than just a slogan.

The key word is "over" as in excess development, and based on that campaign pledge Headline Surfer is endorsing Russ Owen for mayor over Lisa Martin. In the other contested race for zone 1 city commissioner, Headline Surfer is endorsing Peggy Belflower over Michael Kolody.
