On Friday, Marty Kiar and Robert Mayersohn filed for district seats.
When I spoke to Kiar recently, he indicated that he would file for the District 1 County Commission seat “within the next couple of weeks.”
It took sixteen days.
Kiar is a tireless campaigner who spent the last year campaigning to replace Senator Nan Rich who is term limited.
But unless there’s a broad win to a fairness challenge either in the legislature or the Florida Supreme Court, District 32 will go mostly to Palm Beach County leaving Broward in the lurch for Senate representation.
The race for the District 1 County Commission seat is to replace term limited Ilene Lieberman who is also term limited.
Even if the lawsuit to throw out term limits is successful, I suspect Lieberman won’t run again.
Word floating around the county is that Lieberman has her eyes set on other goals. Only time will tell.
The race itself has been populated with ins and outs.
In, are Vice Mayor Howard Berger of Tamarac, State Representative Mary Kiar, and Willie Roberson, a resident of Ft. Lauderdale which is not in the district.
Out are Sunrise resident James Ale, Sunrise Commissioner Sheila Alu and Lauderhill Mayor Richard Kaplan.
School system activist Robert Mayersohn has joined the race for the District 4 School Board seat currently occupied by appointee Donna Korn.
Korn was appointed to the Board last year to replace member Dave Thomas who resigned to concentrate on his wife’s health.
She does not live in district 4 and will have to move into the district by the qualifying period in order to run.
Donna made my top ten candidate list for district Superintendent last year.
Meanwhile, Mayersohn, who ran unsuccessfully for the seat in 2010, joins Jaime Levine (who also ran unsuccessfully in 2010 and 2006) and Louis Kushner.
Expect more candidates to file for the District 4 seat.
