So, anybody can be a council person as long as he gets his name on the ballot. I thought you have to be a candidate from the city district where you live and be nominated by your constituents ? No wonder we have bad representation in City Hall

Hi Guillermo, You have to have resided in the city limits for six months prior to election to qualify as a candidate. However the way someone applies to get their name on the ballot in New Port Richey is by filing qualifying paperwork with the city clerk so it can be reviewed by election authorities.

Fiing qualifying paperwork? and being reviewed by the election authorities? seems to me anti-democratic.So being elected by your distric constituents doesn't count.? WHAT A WAY of electing public officials. no wonder.
