'Make it Happen in Titusville'
BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Former school board member Robert Jordan formally announced his candidacy on Monday to run for the Mayor of Titusville in 2016.
“As of today, March 2, 2015, I, Robert Jordan, formally announce my Candidacy for Mayor of the City of Titusville,” said Jordan in a release announcing his candidacy.
“I have been asked and encouraged by many of our citizens to run and have, whole-heartedly, accepted the challenge to, ‘Make it Happen’ in Titusville.”
Current Titusville Mayor James H. Tulley, Jr. was first elected in 2008, and his current term will expire in November 2016.
Titusville voters elect five Council members for four-year terms on a staggered-term basis.
The Mayor is a member of the City Council and is elected in the same manner as other Council members. Council members run for office in non-partisan elections.
Titusville has “at-large” elections – all city voters have the opportunity to vote for the candidate of their choice to fill each vacancy and to represent the city as a whole.
The Council, as the legislative body, determines all municipal policies which are not set forth in the City Charter or by State legislation, adopts ordinances and resolutions, votes appropriations, approves the budget and determines the tax rate. The Council also appoints interested citizens to serve on various City advisory boards and commissions.
“This is going to be a great campaign and I ask all of my family, friends, associates, acquaintances, neighbors, and fellow Titusvillians to support me as we, together, ensure a great future and legacy for our children and grand-children,” said Jordan.
“Karen and I are very excited and look forward to engaging in conversation with as many citizens as possible to ensure that we accomplish this goal together.”
