5 seek to fill vacancy on Brooksville City Council

BROOKSVILLE — Five people, including one former City Council member and two former council candidates want to fill the vacant seat left by former council member David Pugh.

According to City Clerk Janice Peters, the city received letters of interest from Frankie Burnett, Jason Sharp, Shannon Dempsey, Herman Scriven and Brent Gaustad before Monday's 5 p.m. deadline.

Burnett served on the council from 2004 to 2008, when he was defeated by current council member Joe Johnston.

Sharp ran unsuccessfully for the Group 3 seat in 2004 and 2008.

Dempsey serves as an alternate on the city's planning board.

Scriven, a civic leader who is helping to spearhead the South Brooksville revitalization project, is pastor at Eastside House of God in Brooksville.

Gaustad, an assistant principal at Hernando High School, ran unsuccessfully for the Group 3 seat in 2004 and had a failed bid for a School Board seat in 1998.

At its Feb. 1 meeting the council will decide whether to amend its current ordinance that requires a special election be held to fill the seat. If members amend the ordinance, the council will choose the replacement.
