Barring unexpected, Morroni plans to run in 2010



Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni has yet to file for re-election in 2010 as he finishes a battle with cancer. His doctor has given him good reports, though, and his hair is all the way back.

But Morroni, a Republican, said this week he wants to clear his tests and receive a good doctor's report in December before firing up the campaign. Besides, he said he normally waits till after the beginning of the election year. His announcement may come at the county GOP's Lincoln Day dinner expected  in early 2010. (No one else has filed to run for the seat yet, either).

"All things considered am I running for re-election? Yes I am," Morroni said.
