I was happy to see this in my inbox this morning:
Small Business owner, Edgewater City Councilman Justin Kennedy has officially declared his candidacy in the district 3 race for Volusia County Council.
Married for almost 20 years, Justin and Susan Kennedy have 5 school age children. “We believe public service is an important part of our society.” Susan Kennedy is an English teacher at New Smyrna Beach High School.
Kennedy says that his goal as a county councilman, if elected, would be to bring common sense back to the Volusia County Council. Divisive politics, wasteful spending and unprecedented county government overreach all led to his decision to run for the position.
The “icing on the cake” is the $100,000+ Kaney boondoggle. Kennedy says he hopes to bring this issue front and center in order to expose it for what it is.
