Kennedy out, Patterson in for PSJ election campaign

Commissioner Bo Patterson said his skin was so tough it could be fried.

During a special meeting of the Port St. Joe City Commission on Monday, Kennedy declared that one term as a commissioner was enough and Patterson hoped voters would give him two more years.

With candidate qualifying starting on Wednesday, the two commissioners declared their intent to stay or go in the coming election season.

Kennedy said it would not “be healthy” to run for a second term, saying he would not stand for re-election to the Group I seat.

“I want to announce I will not be seeking another term,” Kennedy said. “I don’t like conflict. I don’t like some of the things that are going on in the city. It is not healthy for me to continue.”

Kennedy did not elaborate on specifics, but said that he had believed his work career had provided a sufficiently thick skin.

However, he said that was not the case within the role of commissioner.
