Broxson enters District 4 race

Holley-Navarre native James Broxson, 30, has joined two other candidates in the race to represent District 4 on the Santa Rosa County Commission.  Ruth Dupont-Esser and Rob Williamson are also vying to fill the seat which will be vacated next year following new district boundaries which were established following the 2010 census. Due to the redistricting, current District 4 Commissioner Jim Melvin will run against Commissioner Bob Cole to represent District 2.  Broxson grew up in the area, where his family has resided for about 150 years.  Broxson hopes to follow in the footsteps of several relatives who have also served in public office.  James’ great-grandfather, William Milton Broxson, served as a school board member and county commissioner in the early 1900s and was instrumental in the development of Hwy. 87 and Yellow River Bridge.
