Because of the recently enacted ordinance to hold elections on even-numbered years, in concert with state and federal elections, their terms will run three years, not four, and end in 2026. After that everyone will be on four-year, even year, cycles, with the county’s supervisor of elections, Heather Crum Riley, handling the administration of elections.

Apalachicola City Commissioner Despina George swears herself in, in keeping with a tradition she began when she was first elected four years ago. [ City of Apalachicola ]
