BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — 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.
