A total of 13 candidates are fighting for this seat left vacant by former commissioner Ken Russel who had to resign when he was running for a federal seat.

They had six weeks to fight for the support of other commissioners, unions and residents of the riverside neighborhoods of District 2.

About four candidates have a higher chance of winning based on the funds raised, their experience in the district, and the apparent advantage of their campaigns.

Former television journalist and businesswoman Sabina Covo could make history.

Communications professional and neighborhood activist James Torres hopes the city’s younger sector will give him the win. And former circuit judge Martin Zilber highlights his long career

The commission had a long and tense debate lasting more than two days to decide whether to appoint the replacement or call an election.

Now, with three days of early voting and one election day, they hope their neighbors will take the opportunity to choose who will represent them.

Early Voting Thursday, Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
