Dunedin mayor's run for county office could spark busy city election
DUNEDIN - Mayor Dave Eggers announced Monday that he will run for the District 4 Pinellas County Commission seat being vacated by Susan Latvala.
Within hours, two current city commissioners said they were considering running to replace him, leading to the possibility that four of the five City Commission seats could turn over in the November city election.
Eggers, a Republican, is the 10th candidate to announce for the District 4 seat, which has been held by Latvala since 2000.
Win or lose, Eggers' run for the county seat means he will resign from the Dunedin City Commission come November.
