in Uncategorized by

After winning in November, state Rep. Scott Plakon filed paperwork for a re-election run in 2016, according to the Florida Division of Elections.

Plakon will return to the Legislature after unseating Democratic state Rep. Mike Clelland last month in Seminole County’s House District 29.

The Longwood Republican served four years in the House until 2012, when he lost the race in neighboring District 30.

Filing paperwork allows Plakon to start fundraising for the race.
