Mayor Woody Brown and Commissioner Jamie Robinson were re-elected to the Largo City Commission when no one showed up to run against them by the closing of qualifying Friday.
Largo voters will have a chance to go to the polls to choose between Curtis Holmes and Neil McMullen who are running for Seat 3.
“I’m happy,” Brown said Monday.
Not having an opponent, Brown said, means he can focus on what’s happening in the city and the commission’s projects.
This will be Brown’s first full four-year term as mayor. He was elected mayor two years ago to fill the seat vacated by Pat Gerard who resigned for a successful run for the Pinellas County Commission.
Brown, owner of Main Street Chiropractic, was elected to the Largo commission in 2007. He was re-elected in 2010 for a four-year term which expired in 2014. He served as vice-mayor from 2009-2010 and from 2012-2014.
This will be the second four-year term for Robinson, who was first elected to the commission in 2012.
In the contested race, Holmes, the incumbent, will be facing first-time candidate McMullen.
Holmes is the owner of First Southeast Insurance Services and vice-president of Innovative Marketing of America. He has served on the Largo commission since 2009.
McMullen is a fourth generation Floridian and member of one of Pinellas’ pioneer families. He serves on Largo community development advisory board/community redevelopment area advisory board and is vice chair of the Forward Pinellas (Metropolitan Planning Organization/Pinellas Planning Council) citizens advisory committee.
The race, which will be on the Nov. 8 general election ballot, is nonpartisan.
