Initially elected to Seat 2 in 2008, Slattery campaigned on preserving the town's heritage while preparing for the future. She was also a proponent of smart growth and green initiatives, and keeping a proposed Wal-Mart off the banks of the Anclote River. The qualifying period for the March 8, 2011, election is Nov. 16 to 5 p.m. Nov. 24. A second seat will be on the March ballot as well. Commissioner Robin Saenger in Seat 1 must step aside due to term limits. Commissioners can only serve two three-year terms. The job pays $8,000 a year plus some health and life insurance benefits.
