Tracy Andrews, Candidate for City Council Ward 3 in Chipley, Florida, Explains Her Candidacy

On the first Tuesday in August each year, the City of Chipley, Florida gives voters an opportunity to change leadership via the City Council, electing new representatives for the four Wards, along with a member at-large.

On August 1, 2017 the City of Chipley would have potentially voted for new leadership for Wards 2 and 3, but Tommy Sasser, sitting Councilperson for Ward 2, did not have a challenger.

The Ward 3 Council seat, however, is up for grabs, as political newcomer Tracy Andrews vies for that position, and would be the first African American woman to hold that seat, currently held by Lee Dell Kennedy, who also holds the honorary title of Mayor.

The voters do not have a say in who occupies that mayoral seat, as the five sitting councilpersons make that decision among themselves following each election.

Here is a Real Florida Magazine ‘Meet The Candidates’ interview with candidate Tracy Andrews, in downtown Chipley, Florida, on Friday, July 7, 2017, produced by Real Florida Media, a subsidiary of The Goulding Agency in Chipley, Florida.

For the past 10 years, Real Florida Magazine has offered an opportunity to all candidates for all city, county and state elected positions to appear on the show, explaining to the voters why they should be elected to that respective position.

If you are a political candidate, we offer you the opportunity to appear on the program and tell the community, in your own words, why you should be considered for your respective office.
