Brevard Clerk Scott Ellis Endorses Bryan Lober For Brevard County Commission District 2
By Space Coast Daily // July 8, 2018
'Bryan is beholden to no political or financial interests and will challenge status quo government'
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Bryan Lober, a Republican candidate for Brevard County Commission District 2, has received the endorsement of Brevard County Clerk of the Court Scott Ellis.
“Bryan Lober will bring a fresh set of eyes and an inquisitive mind to the county,” said Ellis.
“Bryan is beholden to no political or financial interests and will challenge status quo government.”
Lober is running for the seat in which current Commissioner Jim Barfield will vacate next November. He is the Immediate Past President of the Brevard County Bar Association and is the current treasurer of the Trump Club in Brevard County.
“I’ve decided to enter this race as I believe that District 2 constituents deserve to have a qualified candidate who will not simply be a yes-person and rubber stamp the endeavors of other commissioners,” said Lober.
“I’ve never previously sought elected public office and I will be self-funding my campaign for District 2 County Commission and, consequently, there is no possibility of my being beholden to anyone in exchange for their financial support.
“While I was registered NPA for a number of years, through college and law school, I have never been registered as a Democrat. My right-leaning beliefs have been longstanding. Years ago, while Toni Jennings served as the first female President of the state Senate, I worked as a Senate page for her,” said Lober.
Lober is a graduate of Stetson University College of Law and is AV Preeminent rated by Martindale Hubbell. He has taught subjects ranging from Criminal Litigation to Business Law at Seminole State College’s ABA Approved Paralegal Education Program.
He was recently appointed to serve on the statewide Judicial Nominating Procedures Committee and is Florida Supreme Court certified as a Circuit Civil and Family Mediator.
“District 2 constituents deserve to be represented by someone who is fiscally conservative and will ensure that county funds are not gratuitously spent and that taxes aren’t raised unless the need is genuine and extenuating and there exist no meaningful alternatives,” said Lober.
Barfield, who announced last November he will not run for a second term, will stay on through next November’s election.
The District 2 seat is sure to be hotly contested as in the past. In 2014, Barfield edged Michael Hartman by just 363 votes out of almost 10,000 that were cast in the Republican primary.
Candidates that have filed thus far in District 2 in addition to Lober include Republican Chuck Nelson, and Democrats Jack Smink and Victoria J. Mitchner.
Brevard County’s District 2 includes Merritt Island, Port Canaveral, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Avon by the Sea, Kennedy Space Center, Snug Harbor and Patrick Air Force Base.
The 2018 Primary Election will be held on August 28 and the 2018 General Election will be held on November 6.
