Dunedin city commissioners to run, serve in assigned seats


commissioners to run, serve in assigned seats

City commissioners last week were assigned numbered seats in accordance with a charter amendment voters passed in March. The assignments are: Julie Scales, seat 1; Deborah Kynes, seat 2; Dave Eggers, seat 3 and Julie Ward Bujalski, seat 4. The mayor's seat is not numbered. Candidates for the commission can now run for specific seats in the future, and city voters will cast ballots in all races. In the past, candidates simply ran for the commission itself, and if there were two seats open, the top two vote-getters would be elected.
