A Sandusky city commissioner announced Saturday who she wants see on commission with her next year.
"I fully support Naomi Twine in the November election," commissioner Julie Farrar said. "You can vote for only one person if you like, or two. You don't have to vote for all three (open seats)."
Farrar, who works with Twine at the Ohio Veterans Home, made the announcement at the African Heritage Festival sponsored by the St. Stephen African Methodist Church on Neil Street.
There are three commission seats open in the Nov. 5 election, including the spots currently held by ex officio mayor John Hamilton and commissioner Diedre Cole, who are both seeking re-election. The third seat is currently held by Pervis Brown, who is not seeking re-election.
The other candidates seeking office include Dennis Murray Jr., a former commissioner and state representative, Dick Brady, another former commissioner and local business owner, and Scott Schell, a county employee and former city employee.
Patricia Ferguson, who also works at the Ohio Veterans Home, also is a candidate.
Farrar said she wanted to get Twine's name out there for voters.
"You wouldn't believe how many people think they have to vote for three just because there are three openings. Some of our electorate does not know that they can just vote for one or two people if they like. I wanted to make sure they were aware."
Twine embraced the support from Farrar.
"I am pleased to accept the endorsement from commissioner Farrar and look forward to joining her and all of the elected officials at the commission table to collaborate and build consensus on a vision and plan for moving our great city forward," Twine said.
