Election already over for some unchallenged positions

Several offices won't appear on the general election ballot because the seats have already been decided — one way or another.

Pasco School Board member Allen Altman and state Reps. John Legg and Rich Glorioso won re-election the easy way: They didn't draw an opponent.

By contrast, Richard Corcoran had a heated three-way Republican primary for the open state House seat in District 45. But he emerged the victor in the Aug. 24 election, and after a write-in candidate dropped out, Corcoran officially clinched the seat.

Circuit Judge Michael Andrews and County Judge Debra Roberts both won re-election on the primary ballot. Kimberly Todd and Patrice Moore also won spots on the Pinellas-Pasco bench on Aug. 24. Chief Judge Thomas McGrady and Judges Peter Ramsberger, Jack Helinger and Cynthia Newton sailed into new terms without opposition.
