The District 2 election saga continues
According to City Attorney Victoria Mendez, the law states that the election must go on, but all votes for Teresa Sarnoff will not count and any votes that Ken Russell receives will go to him.
It sort of reminds me of that special deal that the Miami Parking Authority has every year where you get a free extended period of parking around the holidays when you go over your metered time, so of course you just need to put five or 10 minutes worth of parking into the meter and you get an hour and five or 10 minutes of parking.
Same here. Ken only needs one vote to win.
From the Herald: 'The city is 'bound by Florida Supreme Court precedent and Florida election procedures requiring that any votes for Teresa Sarnoff not be counted,' stated the opinion, prepared by assistant city attorney Forrest Andrews."
