Edwards vies to keep seat on Spring Hill fire board

SPRING HILL

Edwards vies to keep seat on fire commission

The Spring Hill Fire Rescue commission race has attracted a third candidate. Benjamin Edwards, who was chosen in February to fill the seat of retiring commissioner Gene Panozzo, joins candidates George Biro and Sherry Adler, who are vying for the district's two seats that are up in November. Edwards, a former captain of the district's Fire Police, ran unsuccessfully for the position in 2008. Biro was appointed to the board in 2004 but lost the seat in the 2008 election. Adler is a political newcomer.

Correction

Anna Liisa Covell filed a complaint against Blaise Ingoglia's Government Gone Wild seminars in 2007 with the Florida Elections Commission. A story in Friday's edition had a different agency.
