Ken Hagan runs for re-election to Hillsborough commission

TAMPA — Hillsborough County Commission Chairman Ken Hagan has filed the paperwork to run for a fourth and final term in 2014.

Hagan, a Republican, was first elected in 2002 to the District 2 seat representing northern Hillsborough before winning an at-large seat. If he wins reelection, he will serve 16 years on the commission before he must leave due to term limits. So far, no one else has filed for the seat.

Meanwhile, School Board member and Democrat April Griffin has made it official, filing papers to run for the at-large commission seat to be vacated by Republican Mark Sharpe in 2014.

Already Democratic Tampa City Council member Mary Mulhern and Republican Commissioner Al Higginbotham, in the District 4 seat representing largely eastern Hillsborough, have filed for the same seat.

    BOSTON — You might want a bigger boat, but you probably don't need better odds.

    FILE - In this Sept. 13, 2012 file photo, Captain Brett McBride places his hand on the snout of a great white shark while scientists collect blood, tissue samples and attach tracking devices on the research vessel Ocearch off the coast of Chatham, Mass. Before release, the nearly 15-foot, 2,292-pound shark was named Genie for famed shark researcher Eugenie Clark.
