Two seats up for grabs

Four candidates have qualified to compete for two open seats on the High Springs City Commission.

Among the qualified candidates are current Mayor Larry Travis and Vice-Mayor Byran Williams.  Bob Barnas and Linda Gestrin Clark have also qualified to run in the 2011 election cycle.  Barnas and Clark both sought seats on the commission during the 2010 election cycle but came up short.

The election will be held Nov. 8.

The two open seats, currently occupied by Travis and Williams, have three-year terms.  Williams was elected last year to fill the remainder of a vacancy, which was left when Commissioner Diane Shupe resigned.

The top two vote winners will fill the openings.

Qualifying began Monday, Aug. 1 at 8 a.m. and closed Friday, Aug. 5 at 4:30 p.m.
