This year, three candidates, Mike Ruffolo, Tom Polke and Susan Levine have met the filing deadline to run for election for three available seats on the Pelican Bay Foundation Board of Directors. According to Florida statute, when the number of candidates is equal to or less than the number of seats available, no election is required to take place and these three candidates will rightfully be installed as Board members without the necessity of a vote at the Annual Membership Meeting on Monday, March 27, 2023.
