Political candidates take part in meet and greet in DeBary
Same-day coverage /
Headline Surfer photo by Henry Frederick / Rich Gailey (at left), a candidate for the district 5 seat on the Volusia County representing greater Deltona, criss crosses with Volusia County Sheriff's candidate Wendell Bradford (shown in the inset as well) in front of the Gateway Center for the Arts in DeBary following a candidates' forum held there Tuesday evening.
The event was well attended by a host of candidates seeking elective office throughout the county, including Gailey's opponent, Volusia County Council member Pat Northey, and Wendell's opponent, Volusia County Sheriff Ben Johnson.
Headline Surfer got there at the last minute from New Smyrna Beach to snap this photo after filing a breaking news story on the surprise announcement County Council member Carl Persis that he was resigning, effective June 28, because of a technicality. However, he remains in the race for Volusia County chair. Here is a link to that earlier story: http://headlinesurfer.com/content/409391-carl-persis-resigning-county-council-due-technicality-continue-his-run-volusia-county.
