23/06/2018 – MiamiHerald. / A judge will decide whether a would-be Key West mayoral candidate can run in the Aug. 28 election.
Mark Rossi, the former city commissioner who owns a block filled with bars on Duval Street, failed to qualify Friday when he didn’t pay the required-by-law $225 fee by 12 p.m. Friday.
But election officials say it may not be Rossi‘s fault since they mistakenly had put “qualified” next to his name on their website.
Monroe County Supervisor of Elections Joyce Griffin said Friday evening she would file a lawsuit Monday to determine whether Rossi can run in the election with eight other candidates.
