Two Plant City commissioners draw no opponents for new terms


PLANT CITY Two veteran city commissioners will return to office without waging re-election campaigns.

No one qualified to run against either Bill Dodson or Mike Sparkman by Friday’s deadline. They will be sworn in for three-year terms in June.

Dodson won the Group 3 seat in 2002 over two opponents. He has been returned to office without opposition ever since.

Sparkman has served a total of more than 20 years on the city commission since the late 1980s.

They were the only commissioners on the five-member board whose terms expired this year.
