New Rules If You're Running For Elected Office In Boca Raton

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The City Council just updated the calendar that potential candidates must follow as they enter the political process in Boca. Here’s the official language from the City:

The City Council  of Boca Raton  recently adopted Ordinance 5182 which
amends the City Charter to change  the  candidate qualifying dates from the
first seven business days of February to the first seven business days of
January.   The change is for mayoral and  council candidates.  The February
timeframe  consistently resulted in a conflict with the Supervisor of Elections’
deadline for submitting candidate names for inclusion on the ballot and  also
posed a campaign timing issue for candidates.  The January qualifying dates
are in effect for the March 13, 2012 municipal election.
