In St. Petersburg, voters are electing four City Council members.

In Largo, two City Commission races top the ballot:


Seat 5: Harriet Crozier vs. John Mandujano

A 13-year veteran of the City Commission, Harriet Crozier, 63, is seeking another three-year term. Crozier's campaign is her resume.

Mandujano's campaign is Crozier's resume, too. The 52-year-old calls her record lackluster.


Seat 6: Woody Brown vs. Curtis Holmes

Political newcomers Brown and Holmes are running for the seat being left open by Gay Gentry.

Brown, a 37-year-old chiropractor, said his experience in the community makes him the best candidate.

Holmes, 58, is a frequent critic of City Hall who now is hoping to change things from the inside.


Polls are open in both cities from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. You can find your precinct and see a sample ballot by visiting the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Web site at
