Running for City Commission
In order to qualify to run for City Commissioner, candidates must be a qualified elector of the City of DeLand and must have or will have resided within the present corporate limits of the City of DeLand for at least six (6) months immediately preceding the date of the election.  Candidates are required to sign both a City and a State of Florida oath, file a State of Florida Appointment of Campaign Treasurer and Designation of Campaign Depository for Candidates (Form DS DE 9), file a Statement of Candidate (Form DS-DE 84), file a Statement of Financial Interests, and pay a qualifying fee equal to one (1%) of the annual salary of the position sought.

If you are interested in running for the City Commission, it is important that you contact the City Clerk’s office to obtain information about the specific requirements for filing.  State law has very specific laws with regard to candidates.  For example, candidates must file the State of Florida Appointment of Campaign Treasurer and Designation of Campaign Depository for Candidates (Form DS-DE 9) BEFORE opening a bank account, accepting contributions toward their candidacy, or expending any funds toward their candidacy (including the qualifying fee).  Candidates must file a Statement of Candidate (Form DS-DE 84) within ten (10) days of filing the Form DS-DE 9.  Once these forms are filed, candidates are required to file periodic Campaign Treasurer Reports with the City Clerk’s Office pursuant to the filing schedule prescribed by State law.

The City Clerk shall have qualifying forms available for completion by any candidate who wishes to run for the City Commission.   All qualifying forms and the qualifying fee shall be filed by a candidate at the time and on the dates established by the Florida Election Code of each even-numbered year, unless otherwise set by adoption of a resolution by the City Commission.  Qualifying dates for the 2010 General Election will be from 12:00 p.m., June 14, 2010 through 12:00 p.m. June 18, 2010.

You may contact the City Clerk to obtain further information by calling 386-626-7132 or click here to submit your questions on line.
