Who qualified by petition for Lauderhill City Commission?
This November Lauderhill voters will elect a Mayor and one city Commissioner. Candidates can qualify for the ballot by paying a fee, or by collecting petition signatures. It only takes about 400 signatures to qualify by petition.
Five candidates have campaign accounts to raise money, but none of them have qualified by petition to have their names placed on the ballot. The three candidates who are challenging Commissioner Benson have thrown away a great opportunity to meet voters and build up valuable name ID. They very well may regret that decision in November. Benson is well-known and will have little trouble raising money for his campaign.
