Madeira Beach incumbents face challengers on March ballot

Two Madeira Beach commission seats are up for grabs in March and four candidates qualified for the ballot ahead of the noon deadline on Jan. 12.

Voters will decide whether to give longtime District 1 incumbent Terry Lister another term or send Deby Weinstein to the five-member panel in his stead. In the District 2 race, current Commissioner Nancy Hodges is up against Eric Breslin.

The Madeira Beach Board of Commissioners consists of the mayor and four commission members. After each municipal election, a the board votes to elect a Vice-Mayor for a one-year term.

The panel meets the second Tuesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall.

The Madeira Beach elections will be held on March 13, when Pinellas County holds its municipal elections. Residents can determine which district they live in by visiting the Madeira Beach website.

More than 20 city commission or city council seats will be up for grabs in Pinellas County communities on Election Day, including seats in Belleair, Belleair Beach, Clearwater, Gulfport, Indian Rocks Beach, Kenneth City, Redington Beach, South Pasadena and Treasure Island.

In addition, the communities of Belleair, Indian Rocks Beach, Kenneth City, Pinellas Park and Treasure Island will hold mayoral elections.

More information on the offices slated for the March ballot can be found via the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections website. New voters must register by Feb. 12 in order to cast a ballot in the municipal election, and those looking to vote by mail must request a mail ballot by no later than March 7.
