A longtime follower of my blog (I didn’t know I still had any) read about my posts on Dunedin’s and Safety Harbor’s municipal elections and reminded me that little ol’ Kenneth City has a history of interesting elections and shouldn’t disappoint this spring because it has a decent slate of races up for grabs. I hadn’t posted anything about these races because this the venerable Anne Lindberg beat me to this story. Nevertheless, here’s the rundown straight from her story:

Three of the five seats on Kenneth City’s council are up for grabs and voters have choices for each of them. In the mayor’s race, Muriel Whitman is running for re-election. Her opponent is a former council member, Teresa Zemaitis, who termed out in 2007. Also on the ballot are incumbent Harold Jividin, former council member Ron Sneed and political newcomer Allen Schopp. They are running for the two open council seats. The two top vote-getters will be elected.

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics. SaintPetersBlog has for three years running been ranked by the Washington Post as the best state-based blog in Florida. In addition to his publishing efforts, Peter is a political consultant to several of the state’s largest governmental affairs and public relations firms. Peter lives in St. Petersburg with his wife, Michelle, and their daughter, Ella.
