The Clearwater City Council candidate field is set for March elections - 2019-11-27
CLEARWATER ― It's not always easy for Clearwater to field a full slate of City Council candidates.
That won't be a problem during the March 2020 elections. No fewer than 13 candidates have qualified for three city races. Four are running for the open mayor's Seat 1 occupied by the termed-out George Cretekos; five vie for the open Seat 2 currently held by Jay Polglaze and another four are running for Seat 3, which is currently held by Bob Cundiff. (The incumbent Cundiff is running for re-election.)
The Nov. 15 deadline to qualify for the races has officially come and gone, so let's survey the field. Reminder: In Clearwater, the mayor is just one seat in the five-person council. All five seats are at-large, or elected by the entire city. Three are up for grabs next year.
