Maddox launches bid for city commission seat 1

Feb 8, 2012

After more than a dozen years away from Tallahassee City Hall, former Mayor Scott Maddox says he’s ready to go back.  Tom Flanigan reports Maddox announced his city commission campaign Wednesday.

Maddox announced his plans in the downtown park near the Doubletree Hotel:

“It’s my pleasure to be here to announce my candidacy for the city commission, seat one.”

That’s the seat being vacated by the retiring Mark Mustian.  Maddox supporters include local businessman Kim Williams:

“I’m excited, I’m glad to be a part of Scott’s campaign…be looking forward to helping.”

And Miaisha Mitchell with the Frenchtown Revitalization Council:

“It’s been quite awhile since I had the opportunity to work with Scott Maddox and I’m very excited about this opportunity now.”

Maddox was Tallahassee’s first elected mayor in 1996.  He joins six other candidates in the running for city commission seat one.
