Voter guide: Alachua County's 2022 election races

Raemi Eagle-Glenn was appointed to the commissioner seat earlier this year, when then-commissioner Mary Alford was found to be in violation of the District 1 residency requirements.  Alford has raised nearly $16,000 in campaign contributions, and has spent about $10,000 on her election campaign thus far. Eagle-Glenn has raised just over $12,000, and has spent about $7 thousand. Learn more about the candidates here.


Wheeler has received nearly $22,200 in campaign contributions, outraising Braddy by only about $500.

Incumbent Ken Cornell, who has served as County Commissioner for the last seven years, has garnered over $78,000 in campaign contributions. Van Elmore and Anthony Johnson each trail behind Cornell by more than $60,000.
