With the impending retirement of Ion Sancho, for the first time in 28 years there will be no incumbent in the Leon County Supervisor of Elections office seeking re-election.  The three would-be successors to Mr. Sancho make their respective cases: Mark Earley; Tena Pate; and Alan Williams.

The importance of this job to everyone who owns (or rents) property in the county is the focus of this panel, along with the unique qualifications each of the candidates brings to the job.  All four candidates are on hand: Akin Akinyemi; Clay Ketchum; and Doug Will (all Democrats) and No Party Affiliation Candidate Greg Lane.

Three of the five contenders for the office of School Superintendent share their qualifications and vision to lead the district: the incumbent, Democrat Jackie Pons; Republican Forrest Van Camp; and No Party Affiliate Patricia Ann Sunday.  Unable to attend: NPA Rocky Hanna and Democrat Woody Hildebrandt.
