DAYTONA BEACH -- I want you to be the first to know that I am a candidate for the Volusia County Council at-large seat for the 2014 election. I am excited to share this news with you and grateful for all your support and help during this last election season.
Editor's Note: The at-large seat on the Volusia County Council is held by Joyce Cusack of DeLand, shown here, who has not yet announced whether she will seek re-election. Pat Northey is the first candidate to inform the Volusia County Supervisor of Elections of her intention to run for the at-large seat. She is term-limited in her district 5 seat representing greater Deltona. That seat. too, is up for grabs in the 2014 elections. Northey, who took office in January 2007, represents District 5, which includes DeBary, Deltona, Enterprise, Osteen and Stone Island. She was previously an at-large representative on the council, having twice served as its chair before voters began directly electing the chair eight years ago.
