Perennial candidate seeks to enter Hernando County Commission race

Brian Moore hopes to qualify to run for a seat on Hernando’s commission.

Brian Moore hopes to qualify to run for a seat on Hernando’s commission.

BROOKSVILLE — Perennial candidate Brian Moore of Spring Hill has pre-filed paperwork to run for the District 2 Hernando County Commission seat. Moore, 71, said he has grown increasingly frustrated with the County Commission for spending money on the wrong things and believes he would be the right choice to make wise spending decisions. He filed under no party affiliation.

Moore said he plans to spend the next week — before the qualifying deadline, at noon Friday — trying to raise the about $2,500 qualifying fee from friends and supporters or he will not stay in the race. The incumbent in District 2 is Wayne Dukes.

Dukes, a Republican, is seeking a second term, while Democrat Jimmy Lodato is also running for the seat. Moore has previously run for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, as well as the offices of the governor and the president as the socialist candidate in 2008.
