Charlie Ericksen is challenging incumbent mayoral candidate Jon Netts in the Palm Coast election. He answers 12 questions and a few follow-ups on a broad range of issues.
The results, based on an internet poll conducted by the tea party, has its limitations, but nevertheless points to unexpectedly lopsided–and surprising–numbers. Jon Netts and Charlie Ericksen may be in a closer race than either expected as early voting continues.
Live, blow-by-blow coverage and analysis of tonight’s Palm Coast city elections’ candidates forum at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Qualifying closed Tuesday with Charlie Ericksen and Joe Cunnane challenging Jon Netts for mayor in the Sept. 13 primary, which may prove to be the deciding date in that race. Two council seats will be decided on Nov. 8.
Palm Coast’s proposed $10 million city hall appears dead for now. Should it rise again, it would be financed by bonds, not cash, and would have to be approved in a referendum, Mayor Jon Netts says in a significant shift, disarming opponents.
Early voting will last two weeks and be held at the public library in Palm Coast rather than in Bunnell, but voting locations are reduced to six. Voters will be asked to approve a referendum moving elections to even years.
