Sanders plans to challenge Boldt

Former county commissioner Cheryl Sanders is preparing to return to politics.

Sanders, who decided not to seek re-election in 2018 after 20 years as commissioner of District #2, has filed a letter of intent to run in the Republican primary. Incumbent District 2 commissioner, Bert Boldt II, also a Republican, has filed his letter of intent to seek another term.

Boldt, 76, resides at 1 Eagle’s Way in Carrabelle. Sanders, 66, resides at 4901 Jeff Sanders Road in Carrabelle.

In the event that no Democrats or those with no party affiliation file for the seat, then the two will square off in an open Aug. 23 primary, open to all voters within the district which includes Alligator Point, Lanark Village and the eastern portion of Carrabelle. 



Otherwise, the winner of the closed GOP primary will head to the Nov. 8 general election to face an opponent.

The only other candidate to file a letter of intent is incumbent District #4 School Board Member Stacy Buck Kirvin, 59, of 142 Deer Patch Lane, Apalachicola. 

The formal qualifying week for all local offices is June 13 to 17.
