Massey, Murray vie for seats
on Mount Dora council
MOUNT DORA — Mark Slaby’s decision not to seek re-election to the Mount Dora City Council left a wide open field for the at-large seat he currently holds.
On Nov. 7, voters will decide between Harmon Massey and Jim Murray, the two candidates vying for the chance to take Slaby’s place for the next two years.
Both said they instantly fell in love with the city after visiting with their wives years ago, and both said they are interested in seeing Mount Dora continue to flourish.
