The shape of Election 2013

Associate Publisher

Now that the deadline for the 2013 Longboat Key election has passed, it is official that three out of the four commission races are contested.

Resident Larry Grossman will be running against Mayor Jim Brown for the District 4 seat, and L’Ambiance resident Irwin Pastor will be running against Commissioner Terry Gans for the one-year At-Large seat.

Former commissioner Gene Jaleski will be running against Commissioner Phill Younger for the two-year At-Large seat.  The fourth seat up for election is the District 2 seat and is the only uncontested seat, held by current Commissioner Jack Duncan.

Grossman is retired, and worked in the Planning Department in Alexandria, Va. Pastor was President and CEO of Pepsi Company in Buffalo, N.Y. and was later President and CEO of South Jersey Distributor Corp. in Atlantic City, N.J. Pastor is also Vice President of the L’Ambiance Board, is Vice President of IPOC, and owns Sarasota Yogurt Company on St. Armands Circle.

Pastor will be running for the one-year At-Large seat, currently held by incumbent Commissioner Gans. The seat has one year remaining, as it was vacated by former Commissioner Hal Lenobel halfway through the two-year term. Commissioner Gans was appointed to fill Lenobel’s seat.

The election will be held March 19, 2013.
