Candidate qualifying in Pinellas Park ended yesterday at 5 p.m. and no one — I repeat, no one — bothered to file against any of the incumbents up for re-election. The seats that were up for grabs were mayor, currently held by Bill Mischler, and the council seats held by Ed Taylor and Sandy Bradbury. The mayor serves a two-year term, and council members serve four-year terms.
