The Parkland city commission may look completely different after the November 2020 election.
That isn’t all.
Vice Mayor Robert Mayersohn and Commissioner Kenneth Cutler are both up for reelection, leaving District 4 and 3 vulnerable to challengers.
Residents who are interested in running for any of the seats need to decide soon because the qualifying date, typically in June, will be announced once Hunschofsky officially resigns.
Besides voting on policy to shape the future of Parkland, the vice mayor and commissioners are paid for their work. They earn $32,735, plus $8,333 healthcare, $3,600 car allowance, and $600 phone allowance for a package of $45,268.
Salary for mayor is $35,553, plus $3,600 auto allowance, $8,334 health insurance, and $600 phone allowance for a package of $48, 874.
Except for mayor, those who are interested in running must live in the district of that particular seat. However, anyone living in the city may vote for that candidate.
A candidate for mayor is required to reside in the city for at least a year before seeking office.
