Former Seminole County Commissioner Grant Maloy officially kicked off his campaign for Seminole County Clerk of Courts and Comptroller on Tuesday night, surrounded by friends and family in Longwood.
Retiring Clerk of Courts Maryanne Morse was on hand and has endorsed Maloy’s campaign after 26 years in the office saying “I pride myself on my staff and the tremendous job they’ve done. They’re doing the ones doing hard work. We will continue from here.” before making a public contribution to the campaign.
Other elected officials on hand included Seminole Commissioner Carlton Henley and Winter Springs Commissioner Jean Hovey.
Maloy faces opposition from fellow former Seminole County Commissioner Mike McLean and Seminole County Sheriff’s Deputy Sammy Gibson in what is expected to be a competitive contest.
“What I want you to remember going into the future is that this is not about me, this is about us” said Maloy “When you see these signs out there, I want you to put your name on there. We’re all in this together. This office belongs to the people of Seminole County. It’s here to represent you and answer to you. That’s what I plan to do.”
