Following Konnie Lukes’ sort-of-maybe-kind-of-hint last month that she’s interested in running for mayor again, another challenger has come forward, this time aiming for Joff Smith’s district 1 council seat.
Tony Economou, a local realtor and friend of evening out the dual tax rate will have his campaign kick off party on November 30, at Coral Seafood, according to an email sent out to friends and associates by Beth Proko.
A quote about Economou from the email:
He understands how critically important it is to expand our tax base to ease the tax burden on existing residents and businesses in addition to how our schools are critically important to our city’s future.
We will never promise that Tony will always have the answer but we do promise that he will be accessible and ready to listen to your concerns. We are looking forward to working on what we hope will be a fun family campaign and we truly hope you will join us in supporting Tony as a strong voice for District 1.
We left a message for him last night for comment, and are waiting for a call back.
