KEY WEST, Fla. – The Libertarian Party of Florida extends congratulations to the candidates of state and local races who successfully qualified to be on election ballots this year.

“I am proud of all of our candidates for going through with the hard job of becoming qualified during times of Covid-19,” says LPF Chairman Steven Nekhaila. “It has not been easy, and even with the reduced signature gathering requirements, signature gathering remained a monumental task. There is no doubt that our candidates will out-hustle and out-smart our duopoly opponents. As the under dogs we are sure to shock!”

  • Davie Parrish – Columbia County Tax Collector, facing a Republican opponent
  • Marcos Diego Marrero – Osceola County Commission District 3, facing a Democrat, a Republican and a Write-in
  • Andre Klass – Seminole County Commission, taking on a Republican and a Democrat.

  • Austin Lee Lanteigne – St Johns Airport Authority Group 4 faces five opponents.
  • Dennis Misigoy – Enclave at Black Point Marina Community Development District
  • Tony Busby – Osceola Soil and Water Conservation District Seat 2
