08.18.06 -- REPORT: Special election qualifications only pulls one candidate
Friday, August 18, 2006
Only one applicant volunteers for special election
By CHER PHILLIPS
The qualifying period for the special election to replace Danaya Wright ended Friday at noon pulling only one applicant, interim council member Lee Deaderick.
The special election date was originally set for October 3. Since there is only one candidate running, town officials will have to determine if an election will be held.
In the past, Council Member Eunice Smith said when candidates ran unopposed in McIntosh, the town did not hold an election.
Deaderick was sworn in to the council last night. He would replace Wright whose term will end in 2007. His candidacy is now dependent the Supervisor of Elections Dee Brown certifying application and his resignation from the school board. He is currently holding dual offices and will need to relinquish that seat to serve on the council.

I'm Cher From McIntosh, FL I'm a graduate student at the University of Florida working on a master's degree in Mass Communication. While I was finishing my undergrad degree in journalism last year, I reported on McIntosh, Fla. for an in-depth reporting class. I figured that the reporting and the public record files should go somewhere people can access them. Reporters don't report to keep the information they find to themselves. Some of that reporting is included here in a forum that allows response. McIntosh suffers because with no news coverage, the local government and the rumor mill have too much potential to run rampant over residents. I moved to McIntosh in the fall of 1999. My profile
