It Will All Come Down To One Vote
Updated: Sep 27, 2018
The Mount Dora Buzz recently interviewed all 3 candidates for the Mount Dora city council seat that represents the entire city At Large. I am providing the link so you can read what all 3 candidates (including me) told the Buzz.
Vote-by-Mail ballots will be mailed out October 2nd. It’s not too late to request one by calling the Elections office at 352-343-9734.
Our city charter requires a candidate receive a majority of the vote, 50% of those voting plus minimum one more vote, to win the seat. If no candidate receives a majority, a runoff election must be scheduled between the 2 candidates who received the most votes. A runoff election costs Mount Dora taxpayers about $15,000. Your vote could LITERALLY be the one vote that wins this election for me or one of the other candidates.
Early voting will be October 22nd to November 3rd, from 10 am to 6 pm each day. The Mount Dora Library is NOT an early voting location this year. You can vote early at Lake Receptions located at 4425 N Highway 19A in Mount Dora, at the Supervisor of Elections office across from Waterman Hospital, or other locations throughout the county from October 22nd to November 3rd from 10 am to 6 pm each day.

Election Day is Tuesday November 6th. You can find your precinct at the Elections website https://www.lakevotes.com/voting/precinct-finder
Your city council is important because it decides what wants and needs are funded with your property tax dollars, what taxes the city will impose upon residents, what new developments are approved, the response of your police/fire/EMS services, water and sewer rates and more.
I have knocked on over 1,800 doors to meet personally with residents in all neighborhoods throughout the city. If I haven’t been to your door, I will be there soon. I look forward to meeting you. You can find me Wednesday through Sunday at Barrel of Books and Games bookstore from 10am to 6 pm. You can call or text me at 352-408-4693. You can email me at CrissyForCouncil@gmail.com
I welcome your ideas, concerns, and I am happy to answer any questions.
