Largo Mayor Re-Elected
Largo’s mayor and one commission member were re-elected with no opposition. Another commission member faces an election foe.
LARGO – Mayor Woody Brown was re-elected Friday (Aug. 12) when no one filed to run against him by the closing of qualifying.
Commission member Jamie Robinson was also re-elected with no opposition. Commission member Curtis Holmes will face political newcomer Neil McMullen in the Nov. 8 general election.
Brown thanked Largo residents on his Facebook page when qualifying ended Friday:
“5:00 Friday August 12. It is officially official. Thank you to everyone who helped get petition cards signed, contributed money and otherwise provided positive encouragement. The qualifying period has past and I have no opposition. I have been re-elected as mayor of Largo for a four-year term. I am grateful for all of the support from my friends in Largo and everywhere else. Let’s do this!”
This will be Brown’s first full-term as mayor. He won election in 2014 to fill the unexpired term of Pat Gerard, who resigned to run for the Pinellas County Commission. Gerard won the race.
Robinson also used his Facebook page to thank supporters:
“I would like to thank everyone that helped with filling out my petition cards over the last couple of weeks. We were successful, and with no opponent running against me, I will be continuing to serve the citizens of Largo for four more years. Thank you again.”
Robinson was first elected to the commission in 2012. This will be his second term.
