The City of Alachua’s qualifying period for the scheduled April 11, 2017 election ended at 12 p.m. on Feb. 28, 2017. Only one individual qualified for election:
Seat 3: Ben Boukari, Jr.
Boukari is a current City Commissioner and in that he was the only qualifier for Seat 3 and there were no other races or matters to be placed on the scheduled April 11, 2017 election, the April 2017 election has been cancelled.
There will be a swearing in ceremony held on April 24, 2017 for Boukari as he enters a three-year term.
