JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Qualifying for candidates seeking public offices in Jacksonville this year ended at noon Friday -- three who will challenge Alvin Brown for mayor, seven will run for sheriff and dozens more for other county offices and City Council seats.
Several offices drew no opposition, including Michael Corrigan for a second term as tax collector and Jerry Holland, who couldn't run again for supervisor of elections, will be the next property appraiser, and one incumbent and one political newcomer won a City Council seat before a single vote is cast.
Some former office-holders are returning to the political fray. Mike Hogan, who lost to Brown four years ago by a razor-thin margin, is running for supervisor election, while former Mayor Tommy Hazouri, former councilmen Terry Fields and Pat Lockett-Felder are on the ballot.
Others with previous name recognition who are now running for office include director of the Clara White Mission Ju'Coby Pitman, MAD DADS founder Donald Foy and former TV anchor Joyce Morgan.
Below is a list of everyone who qualified to be on the ballot in the March 24 primary. While city elections are non-partisan -- any voter can cast a ballot for any candidate in all races -- candidates do list their party affiliations.
