A handful of candidates can look past primaries

Three local officials won re-election the easy way: They didn't draw an opponent when the qualifying deadline passed earlier this summer.

Allen Altman won a second term to the School Board in District 1, which covers east Pasco County.

State Rep. John Legg, R-Port Richey, who represents District 46 in west Pasco, captured his fourth term when two Democratic contenders failed to submit their paperwork to seek the office. State Rep. Richard Glorioso, R-Plant City, whose District 62 includes the southeast corner of Pasco, was also unopposed.

Several races didn't draw any primary challengers, so they will appear on the Nov. 2 ballot. They are:

• Chief Financial Officer: Republican Jeff Atwater, Democrat Loranne Ausley and nonparty candidates Ken Mazzie and Tom Stearns.

• Commissioner of Agriculture: Democrat Scott Maddox, Republican Adam Putnam, tea party candidate Ira Chester and nonparty candidate Thad Hamilton.

• State Senate: Sen. Ronda Storms, R-Brandon, faces write-in challenger Victoria Brake in District 10, which includes southeast Pasco.

• County Commission District 4: Michael Cox, the commission's lone Democrat, faces Republican Henry Wilson Jr. for the west Pasco seat.

• Mosquito Control Board: Member Matthew Abbott faces four for Seat 2: Lester Cypher, Jessica Jordan Griffin, Michael Moore and Nikolas Tzoumas.

Various neighborhoods will also have elections for their community development district boards.
