Candidates certified during Mayor’s Caucus
The countdown is on for the April 11 election in Zephyrhills as the candidates for the race for Mayor and City Council Seat 2 were officially certified Thursday night.
During the Thursday’s annual Mayor’s Caucus, held at the end of the candidate qualifying period, members of city council certified the supervisor of election documents for each candidate.
Candidates Melonie Bahr Monson, Nick Deford and Martin Harm will battle it out in the mayor’s race. Former Zephyrhills City Manager Steve Spina and incumbent councilman Alan Knight will square off in the race for Seat 2.
Monson, Deford, Spina and Knight attended Thursday’s caucus. Monson and Deford brought their family of supporters to the meeting. Spina and Knight were solo and posed for a photo together after the meeting.
“I want to congratulate all the candidates,” said council vice president Lance Smith. “Now the fun work begins.”
