Four open Gulf Breeze City Council seats will be filled without an election.
Mayor Beverly Zimmern and councilmen Dick Fulford, Dana Morris and J.D. Schluter all qualified for the Nov. 2 city election, but only Fulford had a qualified challenger, David Landfair. Fulford withdrew from the race on Thursday in a short letter to City Clerk Marita Rhodes.
“I have decided to withdraw from the Gulf Breeze City Council elections for Seat D,” he wrote. “It has been a pleasure to serve this outstanding community for the past three years and prior years of 1977 to 1980.”
