Recommendations for Key Races In Central Florida: August 18 Primary Election

For only the third time in this publication’s history, I am sharing my recommendations for some key races for the Tuesday, August 18, Primary Election. Surprise! I am including Seminole County! Let me say this, either way, Central Florida (the whole country) is in need of Servant Leaders – people who have been out in the community, working, people who have a passion for serving others (mankind) and/or people who’s experience far outweighs their opponent’s experience. Servant leaders are ladder builders not ladder climbers: They don’t mind helping others up.

Florida’s Primary Election is today, Tuesday, August 18. Central Florida Polling Sites hours: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Call your county Supervisor of Elections Office if you have questions about your polling location or surrendering your mail-in ballot to vote.

For Seminole County, I recommend:

  • State Senator, District 9, Alexis Carter
  • State Representative, District 28, Pasha Baker
  • County Commissioner, District 5, Pernell Bush
  • Circuit Judge 18th Judicial Circuit, Group 15, Tesha Scolaro Ballou
  • Circuit Judge 18th Judicial Circuit, Group 18,
    Steve Henderson
  • Circuit Judge 18th Judicial Circuit, Group 21,
    Donna M. Goerner
