Charles Bargaineer, Anthony Grant and Alvin Moore all want Eatonville Mayor Bruce Mount’s position. But voters will decide on Saturday, March 7, who will be mayor in the town’s General and Special Election.
If you are a registered voter in the town, don’t forget to exercise your right and responsibility to vote on Saturday.
The election, which also includes town commission seats 2, 3 and 5, will take place at Eatonville’s Town Hall, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The mayor and commissioners serve three-year terms. The special election is for seat 5, which is open for an unexpired term with two years left.
This is an interesting mayoral race with the four men running to serve the small town of about 2,000, north of Orlando, nestled between Winter Park and Maitland. Mount beat long-term mayor Grant several years ago for the seat and now Grant is running against him to get it back.
In other Eatonville news: the town, alongside Mayor Mount, is mourning the loss of his wife Winifred K. Mount, who passed earlier this week. Her Home-going celebration will be held 11 a.m. – also on Saturday, at Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church.
