The 2019 City of Defuniak Municipal Elections are just around the corner. Below is a list of folks who have pre-filed to run. For City Elections: William “Todd” Bierbaum is running for Seat 1 currently occupied by Janie Griffith who has also pre-filed to run again. Robert McKnight is running for Seat 2 currently occupied by Kermit Wright who has also pre-filed to run again. Kevin Crystal is running for Seat 3 currently occupied by Ron Kelly who has also pre-filed to run again. For City Marshall: Donald L. Graham James Hurley Current City Marshall Mark Weeks Over the next several weeks I hope each and every person eligible to vote in City Elections and planning to do so will make it a point to look at the incumbents and their track records. MORE IMPORTANTLY, I hope everyone will look into the new candidates, their backgrounds, their agendas, who is backing them financially, ANY non profit groups they are associated with and their campaign contributions or lack thereof.
