Another Democrat has qualified in the race for Florida House District Eight.  That expands the field to three Democrats running for the Leon to Gadsden County seat.

A term-limited Alan Williams is running for Supervisor of Elections leaving the seat open for a new batch of candidates.  Democrat Ramon Alexander—a director with the non-profit distinguished young gentlemen of America—is the newest addition to race. 

“We have to give people the tools and the resources and give them the capacity to think for themselves so that they can invest back into their communities and be significant stakeholders for their communities as well.”

Alexander joins Democrats Dianne Williams-Cox and Clarence Jackson running for the seat.  Two other candidates have yet to officially qualify.
