Seiler to run for Fort Lauderdale mayor

It's official. State Rep. Jack Seiler plans to run for Fort Lauderdale mayor when his term ends this year.

Seiler, a Wilton Manors Democrat and this year's chairman of the Broward delegation, filed paperwork to run for the mayor's post on Wednesday, officially ending rumors about where he would go when he leaves the Florida House due to term limits at the end of this legislative session.

Seiler, a former Wilton Manors mayor, was elected in 2000 and has since earned a reputation as one of the most knowledgeable members of the Legislature.

He will be challenging Fort Lauderdale Cindi Hutchinson to replace current mayor Jim Naugle, who is term-limited out next spring.

Jack will make a great mayor - he's a mayor all of Fort Lauderdale will support. I'm with him 100 percent.

I'll believe it when I see proof that 1) he has moved to Fort Lauderdale and 2) he has given up his homestead exemption on his home in Wilton Manors

Is this the best Team Hutchinson has to offer? Griping about geography. Smells to me like she cant compete Jack's record as an elected official.

That's my former student! Jack was a a delight as a law student and is an effective, hard-working legislator who knows how to reach across the aisle. We did not agree on everything, but I always have respected his reasoning for the positions he has taken.
