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.  

Nick Evans came to Tallahassee to pursue a masters in communications at Florida State University. He graduated in 2014, but not before picking up an internship at WFSU. While he worked on his degree Nick moved from intern, to part-timer, to full-time reporter. Before moving to Tallahassee, Nick lived in and around the San Francisco Bay Area for 15 years. He listens to far too many podcasts and is a die-hard 49ers football fan. When Nick’s not at work he likes to cook, play music and read.
