Local CPA, and former Beach and Parks District candidate, John Costello, has formally endorsed incumbent Earl Starkoff for Seat 3. As the top two vote getters in the August 30th primary, Mr. Starkoff will face Erin Wright in a run-off election on Nov. 8.
The significance of this endorsement cannot be understated. Here are the results of the August 30th Primary:
Wright – 38% 4,415
Starkoff – 37.1% 4,312*
Costello – 24.9% 2,900
Obviously, if Costello voters swing to their candidate’s choice of Starkoff, it could give the incumbent a decided advantage. However, with a November election and very high voter turnout expected, all things are possible.
