Younger running again

by: Kurt Schultheis Senior Editor

At-large Commissioner Phillip Younger will run for his first two-year term in March, according to Town Clerk Trish Granger.

Younger asked for a commission candidate qualification packet on Monday and confirmed for The Longboat Observer Wednesday he will run for a second term.

Younger may have to run against former commissioner and mayor Joan Webster, who hasn’t decided whether to run for her former District 4 seat or the at-large seat currently held by Younger.

Younger already has returned two forms to Town Hall that confirm his treasurer and the bank account he will use to collect donations.

Younger is now able to obtain his petition and collect 10 signatures from Key residents before becoming a certified candidate by the Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Office.

Younger is a past member of the Code Enforcement Board and Planning and Zoning Board. Younger was selected to fill the remainder of the at-large seat that Gene Jaleski resigned from earlier this year.

District 4 Commissioner Jim Brown also has picked up a packet and intends to run for a second term.

Any other interested citizens can request a commission candidate qualification packet by calling Granger at 316-1999.
