Election roster set for most offices

Carol Whitmore of Holmes Beach faces no primary opposition in her bid for re-election to the Manatee County Board of Commissioners.

Whitmore is the District 6 at-large commissioner and last week qualified to run again for the four-year term.

So did Democrat Sundae Lynn Knight, setting the stage for a November contest.

In a District 2 commission race, incumbent Gwen Brown faces a challenge from Michael Gallen in the Democratic primary.

In District 4, Republicans Robin DiSabatino, Norm Luppino and Tim Norwood are running in the August primary for the office currently held by Ron Getman, who decided not to seek re-election. The winner of the primary will face Democrat Roger C. Galle.

Qualifying for nonpartisan posts in Bradenton Beach and Holmes Beach also concluded June 18. Qualifying in Anna Maria, where two commission seats and the mayoral office are up for election, will be from noon, July 19, to noon, July 30.

In Holmes Beach, three candidates — incumbents Sandy Haas-Martens and John Monetti and newcomer Jean Peelen — are vying for two commission seats. Mayor Rich Bohnenberger is unopposed for mayor.

In Bradenton Beach, incumbent Mayor Bob Bartelt is unopposed, as is Ed Straight in the election for Ward 2 commissioner. Incumbent Janet Vosburgh and Michael Harrington are running for Ward 4 commissioner.

For Manatee County School Board District 1, Barbara Harvey is seeking re-election, campaigning against David Bailey.

In District 3, incumbent Jane R. Pfeilsticker faces Albert Yusko and Julie B. Aranibar.

In District 5, Karen Carpenter faces Jennifer Radebach.

For West Manatee Fire Rescue District Commission, incumbents Mike Mulyck, Larry Tyler and John Rigney qualified.

Rigney faces opposition in District 4 from Monther Kobrosly and Tyler faces Michael Carleton in District 3. In District 2, Mulyck faces Scott Ricci.

Elections also will take place this year — the primary is in August and the general is in November — for U.S. senator and representative, governor, other statewide offices, state rep and judicial posts and municipal seats.
