The continuing saga of those running for office, as we reach the midpoint of Qualifying Week — and as usual, the middle of the week has few surprises.
Hillsborough County Commission, District 6
The biggest news of the day: Joe Redner has filed for county commission. Well, the race suddenly gets interesting. Sure, Brian Blair – the Republican incumbent – beat Democratic Stalwart Bob Buckhorn four years ago … but things have changed in four years, especially for those on the ballot with [REP] next to their name.
Of course, Denise Layne – may not want to see Redner. She ran against him (when Joe was a No Party Affiliation candidate) for County Commission District 7 in 2006 — losing to Mark Sharpe.
Only two more days for candidates to officially toss their hats in the ring.
