Coral Springs: Come out and VOTE!

One of GreatFloridaHome’s own Joy Carter is a candidate for the upcoming election for City Commissioner. Joy is a very active member of the community and is in support of the G.O. bond. You can read more details about Joy and her campaign at http://electjoycarter.com/ Registered voters in the City of Coral Springs will have the opportunity to vote for three members of the five-member City Commission on Tuesday November 4th. Voters will be asked to express their preference for Seat 1 (Mayor/ Commissioner) and City Commission Seats 4 and 5. All City Commissioners are elected on an “at-large” basis. The candidate for Seat 2 is running unopposed.


As provided in the City Charter, the Mayor’s seat (Seat 1) term of service is two years and City Commission Seats 2, 3, 4 and 5 have four-year terms of service. However, in this election, Seat 5 will be elected to complete the two-year remainder of a four-year term of office, since the Commissioner holding Seat 5 has resigned in order to run for Seat 1. The Mayor and City Commissioners may serve a maximum of eight years of service on the City Commission.

Before the election there is a Candidate Forum on Tuesday, October 14 that will allow voters to learn more about the candidates and express questions they may have. Hear directly from the municipal candidates at 7 p.m. at the Coral Springs Charter School. Questions may be submitted prior to the event by emailing cssmith@att.net. If you miss the event, the Forum will be replayed on CityTV, Channel 25 on Advanced Cable and Channel 99 on U-Verse. For scheduled times and a list of registered candidates, visit CoralSprings.org/election. For details regarding the Candidate Forum, call 954-735-1311. The Coral Springs Charter School is located at 3205 N. University Drive, just south of Sample Road.
