Tarpon Springs

City Commission Seat 2 challenged

Tim Keffalas has decided to challenge Susan Slattery for her City Commission seat. Keffalas, 56, has lived in Tarpon Springs for nearly 30 years. "I've been pretty vocal off and on," Keffalas said. "I feel I have something to offer, a voice that is independent and I'm not beholding to anyone." The former executive director of the Tarpon Springs Housing Authority, Keffalas owns a small business that deals in automobile accessories and artistic photographic products. Slattery, 26, has filed to seek a second term for Seat 2. The qualifying period for the March 8 election started Tuesday and runs through 5 p.m. Nov. 24. In the only other spot up for election, Townsend Tarapani has filed to run for Seat 1. Current Commissioner Robin Saenger must step aside due to term limits.
