AUBURNDALE — Jack Myers, an Auburndale City Commissioner-Elect and former County Commissioner, has announced his decision to run for Paula Dockery’s seat on the Florida Senate.
Myers filed paperwork to run for State Senator on Friday. Kelly Stargel has been rumored to run for the seat as well.
Dockery, R-Lakeland, entered the 2010 race for governor on Tuesday. If Dockery doesn’t win and doesn’t resign early, Myers will aim his Senate campaign at the 2012 election, when Dockery must step down due to term limits. If she wins the race and resigns early, Myers said he is prepared to replace her on the Senate in 2010.
