This Friday Courtney Watson will officially announce her intention to run for a second term. The District 1 councilperson has scheduled a fundraising event at the Hilton Garden Inn on Snowden River Parkway (near Victoria) from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM where she plans to make official what everyone already knows.
This is all so much silliness but Courtney is no different from any other local politician in that regard. Her Republican opponent, Bob Flanagan, has been campaigning since last September but I don’t believe he has “formally” announced his intentions yet.
Then again there is plenty of time before any candidate is required to formalize their candidacy. They have until July 7th to “officially” fill out the forms and fork over twenty five bucks in order to run.
