The Hernando County Supervisor of Elections office said that Ken Fagan, Ian Norris and Guy "Rusty" Amore have qualified for the November general election. They join previously announced candidates Sherry Adler, Ben Edwards, Harry Chamberlain and George Biro. The unpaid, four-year positions are nonpartisan and the winners are the top two vote getters regardless of the size of the field.
