As I was driving down 17-92 toward Sanford, I noticed a campaign office for Clint Johnson for Mayor. Having been elected to the city council in 2008, and having been a resident for many years, I have never seen a candidate open a campaign office in DeBary before.
As a DeBary resident, I welcome Clint Johnson into the race for Mayor. I have known Danny Tillis and Jack Lenzen for years and have a great amount of respect for both. I met Clint Johnson only once at the October, 2013, debates at the DeBary Art League building. After all candidates have qualified and the qualifying period has ended, I will offer each candidate an opportunity to answer some questions for this website.
I have no plans to endorse any of the candidates for Mayor and I will offer each the opportunity to answer the same set of questions for this website as a public service for the residents of DeBary. Residents can locate Mr. Johnson’s website through the e-mail address of www.clintjohnson.org.
R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s note: With three or more candidates seeking the office for Mayor, the candidates will enter a primary election on August 26, 2014. If no candidate for Mayor obtains 50% + 1 vote, then the two candidates with the highest number of votes will go to the November/2014 general election.)
