Three qualify to run for mayor of Safety Harbor

SAFETY HARBOR — Former Mayor Andy Steingold qualified to run for mayor Tuesday morning, opposing his successor, Mayor Joe Ayoub.

Steingold collected the appropriate qualification paperwork from the city just after 8 a.m., obtained the 100 signatures necessary to qualify for the election and dropped off the completed forms in time for the Tuesday-at-noon deadline, said Matt Spoor, city manager.

Ayoub, a former city commissioner who ran unopposed in 2013 after Steingold resigned from office early to run unsuccessfully for judge, qualified to defend his office.

It will be a three-way race for mayor. City Commissioner Nancy Besore announced in December that she would resign her seat to run against Ayoub.

Dean Harmeson and Andy Zodrow qualified to run for City Commission seat 3, and Carlos Diaz and Ray Irvin are set to contest seat 4.

The election is March 11.

    Blogs

    “Touchdown” Tom Jones, the best Bucs columnist in town, htook it to the house Tuesday when he wrote that Jameis Winston should do the right thing and take a seat if he’s not perfectly healthy to play at Buffalo.

    Whether Jameis Winston plays Sunday or not is Dirk Koetter's call.

    Don't be a hero, Jameis.

  4. NBA off and running to its usual ending

    Blogs

    The NBA season began Tuesday night.

    It ends in June.

    Call me when the Warriors win.

    True, there was news Tuesday night, bad news, grisly news, as Celtics small forward and newcomer Gordon Hayward dislocated his ankle and broke his tibia in a look-away injury early in Boston’s opener at LeBron.

    Call me when the Warriors win, Martin Fennelly writes.
  5. It's time for the Dodgers to be back in the World Series

    Blogs

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been 29 years since the Los Angeles Dodgers made the World Series. That’s far too long. I still remember being at Chavez Ravine for the 1988 World Series, watching Kirk Gibson homer into the right field stands to beat the Oakland A’s in Game 1.

    Been a long …
