Call for Candidates: City of New Port Richey Municipal Election

The City Municipal Election will be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2015. All registered voters of the City of New Port Richey will have the opportunity to elect two people to serve as Councilmembers of the City of New Port Richey. They are elected for a term of three (3) years.

Candidates for this municipal elective office must be registered voters and have resided within the corporate limits of the City of New Port Richey for at least six months prior to the election. Qualifying begins on February 10, 2015 at noon, and ends on February 17, 2015 at noon. No applications will be accepted after that time.

Persons wishing to run for Councilmember of New Port Richey can receive their qualifying documents at the City Clerk’s Office anytime Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. They do not have to wait for the qualifying period to request and complete their documents. However, although they can submit their DS-DE 9 and DS-DE 84 (Appointment of Treasurer and Statement of Candidate) immediately and be registered into the Supervisor of Elections database, the Clerk cannot accept the rest of their qualifying documents until Wednesday, January 27, and cannot submit them until noon on February 10, 2015. Also, if a candidate chooses to be registered into the database prior to qualifying week, they must submit additional monthly Treasurer’s Reports or face considerable fines. For these reasons, it is best to wait until the qualifying period to submit all documents.

Persons desiring more information about qualifying or filing to run for councilmember should contact City Clerk Doreen Summers at 727-853-1024.
