Collier County Races
Collier County’s Primary Election resulted in Daniel Kowal being the outright winner of Collier Commission District 4, Chris Brown as winner of the County Judge seat.
Our Candidate choices are highlighted below in red font:
Collier County Commission, District 2
Chris Hall won the Republican primary and faces Democrat Bebe Kanto
Collier County School Board, District 1
Jerry Rutherford was chosen over incumbent Jory Westberry (Incumbent) due to Rutherford’s strong commitment to Republican values and Westberry’s unimpressive performance during our PAC interview process.
Collier County School Board, District 3
Incumbent Jen Mitchell was chosen for multiple reasons including her insistence in following Governor Ron DeSantis’ guidance concerning mask mandates, opening schools, and keeping extracurricular activities ongoing throughout the pandemic. The school has strengthened its rankings in the State during her term as well.
Her opponent, Kelly Lichter, is not our choice noting her past antagonism during her previous Collier County School Board term, and the current multiple lawsuits she has brought against student’s parents at Mason Classical Academy where she currently chairs it Board of Directors at Mason, and even Hillsdale College (which is the gold standard for charter schools).
Collier County School Board, District 5
Timothy Moshier was chosen for his statements to embrace parent’s rights and exclude non-Republican values from our school curriculum. In addition, he will represent the far eastern parts of Collier County, as he lives in Everglades City. Roy Terry is the Incumbent board member.
Collier Mosquito Control District, Seat 2
Sandra Lee Buxton, RN, BSN, MA (Incumbent)
There is a candidate that shows in the Supervisor of Elections candidate roster named Eliabeth Yiachos, but that name is not listed in the Collier County Voter rolls. This appears to be a ghost candidate. This is the paperwork filed that shows no finances or assets
Collier Mosquito Control District, Seat 3
There is a candidate that shows in the Supervisor of Elections candidate roster named Emily Dalto, but the name “Teixeira Dalto, Emilia Maria” shows is who is registered as a Republican in December 2020, but never voted.
