  • Kenney best choice in District 2 race

    THE ISSUE: Race for BOCC District 2.

  • Proven track record sets Webb apart

    THE ISSUE: Race for BOCC District 4.
    OUR OPINION: Webb the better candidate.

    In the District 4 County Commission race, the primary is really the general election. There are just two candidates, both Republicans, so this race will appear on all ballots and everyone can vote on it.

    The candidates are Scott Carnahan, a newcomer in Citrus County political circles, and former county commissioner Winn Webb.
