ECUA VACANCY FILLED BY GOVERNOR

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has filled the vacancy on the Emerald Coast Utilities Board created by the death of District 3 member Elvin McCorvey who died last January at the age of 74. Cedric L. Alexander will be the new board member, and his term will expire in 2020, when the office is up for re-election. A Pensacola native, Alexander began his career as a deputy with the Leon County Sheriff’s Office in 1977 and eventually served as chief of police of the Rochester Police Department in New York and as chief of police for DeKalb County, Georgia. Currently, four candidates, all Democrats, have pre-filed to run for the seat in 2020.
