Howard does have a problem
September 7, 2006
Jerry Howard is running the District 3 Pensacola City Council seat held by Mike Desorbo. Howard was a big Stop Our City member and campaigned heavily against the Vince Whibbs Community Maritime Park.
There are three precincts in District 3: Cokesbury UMC (30), Cokesbury @ Summit (42) and Our Savior (58). The YES vote was 1,892 No vote was 1,564. The park passed with a little under 55% in DeSorbo’s.
Being the incumbent is worth 5 to 10 percentage points. Therefore DeSorbo could end up beating Howard by 18 to 23 percentage points in November.
I don’t think Save Our City will be around to help Howard either.
